Recipe by Adopted Parisian
This dessert "pizza" is wonderful for parties, showers, and is a real kid-pleaser! It boasts a soft cookie crust, light cream cheese sauce, and crisp apples among the delicious treats that make up the topping. For parents: this is a good way to sneak fruit into your kids' diet!

This was delicious and it does add pizzazz to a table setting and looks like it would take a lot of time to make when actually it is very simple.
I used chocolate chip cookie dough instead of sugar cookie dough and did not add the extra baking time as we prefer a chewier cookie to a crispy one but it still held up well when cut and served.
- 18 ounces premade refrigerated sugar cookie dough
- 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, room temp
- 1⁄2 cup packed brown sugar
- 1⁄4 cup creamy peanut butter

- 2 green apples
- 1⁄4 cup caramel ice cream topping
