YUMMY Pampered Chef Dessert Recipe!!!

My friend, Amy Bell sells Pampered Chef and she hosted a party that I went to last week...and she made this! It was SOOO yummy I went home and made it the next day for my small group. Now something she did (and I did) to make this a little easier was we made this recipe as cookies, not a "pizza". So, we baked individual sugar cookies, and then put icing, apples and caramel on the cookies instead. Just an idea! Here's the recipe...

Taffy Apple Pizza
1 package (18 ounces) refrigerated sugar cookie dough
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
3 medium Granny Smith apples
1/4 cup caramel ice cream topping
1/2 cup peanuts, chopped (optional)
lemon juice (to put on the apples so they won't brown)

1. Preheat oven to 350°F (or whatever the directions call for if you are baking individual cookies). Shape cookie dough into a ball and place in center of Large Round Stone; flatten slightly. Using lightly floured Baker's Roller(R), roll out dough to a 14-inch circle, about 1/4 inch thick. Bake 16-18 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove from oven; cool 10 minutes. Carefully loosen cookie from baking stone using Serrated Bread Knife; cool completely on baking stone. (This is where you can also buy refrigerated cookie dough, or cookie dough mix, make it and place the cookies on a cookie sheet and put it in the oven for however long the directions call for...this was quick for me...probably 7 0r 8 minutes of cooking if you buy the mix.)

2. Combine cream cheese, brown sugar, peanut butter and vanilla in Small Batter Bowl; mix well. Spread cream cheese mixture evenly over cookie (once the cookies cool).

3. Peel, core and slice apples using Apple Peeler/Corer/Slicer. Cut apple slices in half and arrange evenly over cream cheese mixture. (We dipped the apples in lemon juice so they wouldn't brown. I recommend doing this!)

4. Microwave ice cream topping on HIGH 30-45 seconds or until warm; drizzle evenly over apples. Chop peanuts using Food Chopper; sprinkle over apples. Cut into wedges. (Just FYI-I did not heat the caramel since I got the ice cream caramel topping in a plastic squeeze container, and I did not use peanuts in case anyone in my group had allergies.)

Yield: 16 servings (Or more if you do the individual cookie route. I recommend buying the cookie dough mix. It makes a lot more cookies, and is cheaper than the refrigerated dough! Or you can be Betty Crocker and make your own dough!)
