Guest Post:: Tonya from Love of Family & Home {Fall Dessert}

I’m currently on vacation and have asked a few of my fellow bloggers if they would like to guest post for me in my absence.

Today I have the sweet Tonya, from Love of Family and Home with a delicious fall dessert recipe.

Hi, my name is Tonya and I blog over at Love of Family and Home. Today I have one of my favorite go-to desserts to share with you all that I like to take to parties & potlucks. It’s especially great during the fall season! You know, since fall & carmel apples go hand in hand! 🙂

Doesn’t it look delicious?!
I promise you will LOVE this dessert & so will your family & friends! It’s always such a crowd pleaser!

Here’s what you’ll need….
Ingredients:
1 package 16.5oz sugar cookie dough (softened)
1 package cream cheese (softened)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup creamy peanut butter
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 medium granny smith apples
1/4 cup carmel ice cream topping
1/2 cup chopped peanuts
(*Note: you will probably notice that the ingredients call for one package of cookie dough, but my photo shows 2 packages. I used an extra large pizza pan, so I use a little cookie dough out of the second package to fully cover the pan I was using. If you use a standard size pizza pan, one package should do it!)
Spread out cookie dough out onto a pizza pan…..
I used my hands for this. Just a little helpful hint, in order to prevent the cookie dough from sticking to your hands/fingers during this step, rub a little flour onto your hands before spreading the dough out! It works like a charm!
Bake cookie dough at 375 degrees for 16-18 minutes or until light golden brown….
Set cookie aside & let cool for 10 minutes.
Combine cream cheese, brown sugar, peanut butter, & vanilla in a bowl…..
 Mix thoroughly….
Then spread cream cheese mixture onto (cooled) cookie….
For the the apples, I bought pre-sliced apples in the bag & then diced them up….
After dicing the apples, I arranged them evenly over the cookie & cream cheese mixture….
Then I crushed up the peanuts using our food chopper & spread them evenly over the cookie as well….
Once that was finished, I poured 1/4 cup carmel ice cream topping into a microwave safe container & heated up for 30-45 seconds. I then drizzled the carmel on top of the pizza to finish it off!
YUM-O!!!
Eat immediately or refrigerate until serving time….

ENJOY!!!

That certainly looks yummy! Thanks so much Tonya for sharing it with us. 🙂
