Mini Caramel Apple Pizza

It’s that time of year…Apple Season! Because of the warm temperatures in early Spring, and then a blast of cold, our apple orchards here in Northwest Indiana are suffering a bit. But we did manage to pick some delicious apples yesterday. If you love Apple Desserts, stay tuned…because all this week I’m sharing delicious, mouthwatering recipes with you!

Many moons ago, one of my favorite desserts while attending a Pampered Chef party was the Taffy Apple Pizza. Made with a sugar cookie crust, peanut butter cream cheese spread, apples, caramel and chopped peanuts…this Fall treat is sure to be a hit!

Now, although I loved having a large cookie with all the yummy toppings, I thought it would be fun to make a small version so that everyone can enjoy their own, and so Mini Caramel Apple Pizza was born…

You can use your favorite sugar cookie recipe, or do like I did and buy a package of Nestle’ Sugar Cookie dough. I actually grabbed it a little while back for Fruit Pizzas, which never got made, so I decided to use it up instead.

Oh how I love this season…apples, pumpkins, caramel, gingerbread, cranberries…the list goes on and on!

    THANK YOU for having an apple recipe without cinnamon! We love apples in our house but we have a kid with a severe cinnamon allergy, so we can’t have it in the house at all.

  2. This looks amazing!
