Caramel Apple Sugar Cookie Pizza

Its a cookie, its a pizza, and probably its a combination of both! The caramel apple sugar cookie pizza from Chocolate moosey is one awesome recipe for the curious sweet eater. The author added apples in it so does it mean its considered a healthy dish? 

Ingredients:
Cookie
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Caramel Frosting
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
Pinch of salt
1/4 cup caramel (homemade or store bought)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1-2 apples, cored and sliced (depends on size of the apples)
2 tablespoons caramel, to drizzle

Directions:
  1. For the pizza
  2. Preheat the oven to 325F. Grease a round 12-inch pizza pan.
  3. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter and sugars until creamy. 
  5. Beat in the egg and vanilla. Gradually beat in the flour. The dough will still be slightly sticky.
  6. Lightly flour your hands and press the dough into the pan. Bake until the edges are brown and set in the middle, 12-15 minutes. Cool completely.
  7. For the frosting
  8. In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter, sugar, and salt until creamy and fluffy. Beat in the 1/4 cup caramel. Spread onto the cooled cookie pizza. Top with apple slices then drizzle 2 tablespoons caramel.
