Come on  down, you've won the $10 Amazon Gift Card:)  Congratulations and thank you everyone who commented:)

I'm going to be busy the next several days, copy/pasting recipes into my newly-created 'desserts' folder!  And may even make one or two for Easter dinner.

Have a great day; I'll be turning the brain back over to my alter-ego, since she has a book releasing this week (may be) and another one set to release next month:)

Just Desserts Blog Hop

Good morning!  And happy weekend:)  I'm your host, Courtney Bright, and I'm here to entice you with one of favorite dessert recipe:) Enjoy!

Taffy Apple Pizza 1 (18 oz) pkg refrigerated sugar cookie dough
1 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese, softened
1/2 C packed brown sugar
1/4 C creamy peanut butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 medium Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
Sprite/lemon-lime soda
Pinch of cinnamon
1/4 C caramel ice cream topping (optional)
1/2 C peanuts, chopped (optional)

Preheat oven to 350.

Shape dough into ball, then roll out onto baking stone (or round baking sheet) 14" circle, 1/4 thick. Bake 16-18 mins or until light golden brown; cool 10 mins.  Carefully loosen cookie from stone/pan; cool completely.

Combine cream cheese, brown sugar, peanut butter, and vanilla and mix well.  Spread mixture evenly over cookie.  Peel, core, and slice apples, dip in Sprite or other lemon-lime soda (keeps apples from turning brown) then arrange over cream cheese mixture; sprinkle with cinnamon.  

Optional:  Warm up caramel topping in microwave and drizzle over apples.  Chop nuts, sprinkle over apples.  Cut 'pizza' with pizza cutter and enjoy:)
