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….
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!
Eat immediately or refrigerate until serving time….


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