Fruit pizza meets fall! This apple snickerdoodle cookie pizza is full of apple & cinnamon goodness. Eat plain or top with ice cream cream for an amazing dessert.
For some reason, I would rather waste time on twitter or play on Picmonkey then introduce this recipe to you today. Why, I don’t know. It’s not because this wasn’t good because it really was. Ry and I had a good ole time making it and eating it and the other kids enjoyed the eating part too. Besides there are some important details (well semi-important) I do need to share with you about this recipe.
But instead I’m over on twitter reading tweets from a Biblical studies professor that shares actual statements from her students. Like these little nuggets (stuff in parenthesis are her comments, not mine) :
- “666 is less than 7 which in that time referred to God.” (You are terrible at math.)
- “I hope no offense is meant by what I have written.”
- “I think that if there is any doubt that Jesus is who he say he is in the mind of folk then who really is he.” (Slow down, Keanu.)
- “If Jesus is not everything then…….” (Then he’s a series of dots?)
So if you’re on Twitter and need a laugh or to waste time, go check out @BibleStdntsSay. While you’re over there following her, you can follow us as well. I can’t promise we will make you laugh or inspire you or give you helpful info or…. well you get the picture. I can’t promise you much but I do promise that we will try hard not to stink. So there’s that.
Apple Snickerdoodle Cookie Pizza
Now on to the recipe. Some time ago I got it into my head that a snickerdoodle cookie pizza would be awesome. I love snickerdoodles! They are one of my favorite cookies and after seeing a sugar cookie pizza on Pinterest one day, I thought, I need to made a snickerdoodle one. The crust in this recipe is adapted from my favorite snickerdoodle recipe found in the Better Homes & Gardens New Cookbook.
And since it’s fall, I thought adding apples on top would make it extra awesome. Well, and really I’ve done enough with pumpkins for awhile and what else is there in fall? No really what else is there? Any other fresh produce, I should be using in my recipes?
Ok, now here’s the semi-important part I need to tell you. Once you get your snickerdoodle crust mixed and laid out on your stone or pan, you have 3 choices on what to use for the “pizza sauce.” I made mine with all 3 to see which was best and since my family did not agree on the best. I’m sharing them all with you. I preferred the apple butter, my daughter Ry preferred the applesauce and I thought the plain with no “sauce” just apples was the second best. Kae just liked them all and kept asking for more.
