This is a recipie that I originally got from a Pampered Chef cookbook, only I added more peanut butter to it, and soaked my apples in lemon juice to avoid them from turning brown.
- 1 (8 ounce) roll refrigerated sugar cookie dough
- 3 tablespoons flour
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
- 1⁄2 cup brown sugar, packed or 1⁄2 cup Splenda brown sugar blend
- 1⁄2 cup creamy peanut butter (your choice, to desired taste)
- 1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 1⁄2 granny smith apples
- 1 cup lemon juice
- cinnamon, for sprinkling
- 1⁄4 cup caramel ice cream topping, softened enough to drizzle
- 1⁄2 cup finely chopped peanuts
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Cut roll of cookie dough in half and set 1 half aside for another pizza.
- Add flour to remaining dough and knead with.
- hands to combine.
- Spray pizza pan with nonstick cooking spray, so pizza does not stick.

My sister got this same recipe from her foods class. Everytime she makes it, it's a huge success! There are just a few slight differences between recipes. Her recipe calls for an 18 oz. roll of cookie dough, as I have seen in other recipes. Also, she used lemon lime soda in place of the lemon juice and topped the pizza with pecans. Great recipe!
