2 rolls of sugar cookie dough (or make your own)
2 cans of apple pie filling
1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/3 granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1 1/2 sticks of butter, softened
Prep and Preheat: Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a pizza pan or a 9×13 baking dish to prevent sticking.
Sugar Cookie Crust: Spread the sugar cookie dough out to the edges of your prepared pan. This forms the delightful, sugary foundation of your dessert pizza.
Prepare the Apple Layer: Pour the apple pie filling into a bowl, and chop the apple pieces into smaller chunks. This helps distribute the apple goodness evenly. Once done, pour the chunky apple mixture over the sugar cookie dough. Set it aside for now.
Crumb Topping: In a separate bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, granulated sugar, salt, and cinnamon. Mix these dry ingredients together until well combined. Then, add the softened butter, and use a fork or your fingers to incorporate it into the mixture until you achieve a crumbly consistency.
Add the Crumbly Magic: Evenly distribute the crumbly topping over the apple layer. The combination of these sweet crumbs with the apple filling will make your taste buds dance!
Cinnamon Sprinkle: To enhance the flavor and aroma, sprinkle a little extra cinnamon over the entire pan. This final touch adds that perfect hint of spice.
Bake to Perfection: Pop your creation into the preheated oven and bake at 350°F for approximately an hour. Keep an eye on it until the crust is golden brown, and your kitchen is filled with the mouthwatering scent of apples and cinnamon.
Let It Set: After taking it out of the oven, allow your dessert pizza to cool a bit before serving. Whether enjoyed warm or chilled, this delectable treat is bound to disappear quickly. Store any leftovers in the refrigerator.
Slice into this mouthwatering dessert, share with loved ones, and savor the harmonious blend of sweet and cinnamon-kissed apples. 🍏🍪😋
