Every family dinner deserves a decadent ending like this Caramel Apple Sugar Cookie Dessert. A finale so grand, you just might have requests for second’s.
I know it’s a busy holiday week, but I’m popping in here today to share this merry little recipe. I’ve been giving a lot of thought about simple nibbles and desserts to make while everyone is home for Thanksgiving week. And this fun recipe keeps coming to mind.
I used to make this dessert often when my gals were little. It was quite popular about 20 years ago and I can truly say, it’s still a popular dessert in my house.
And what’s not to love? It’s a giant sugar cookie smeared with maple infused cream cheese, layered with fresh, seasonal apple slices and then topped with homemade caramel sauce and crumbled spice cookies!
Caramel Apple Sugar Cookie Dessert is a festive dessert that delights palates and fills food hearts with pure joy.
This festive dessert is one of those recipes that is fun to prepare with all the “littles” in your life, as well as the “big kids”. It includes several steps which makes it an entertaining recipe to make while everyone is standing around in the kitchen waiting for something delicious to eat.
I like to make the cookie dough, and then I snag someone to roll out the cookie crust. I enlist another person to stir the cream cheese mixture and then, whoever wanders into the kitchen gets a chance to help decorate the cookie with the apples. And all the kids, big and small, help drizzle the caramel sauce and sprinkle on the crumbled cookies.
Just the thought of smiling faces, holiday music in the background, and the sweet scents of this festive dessert floating through the house, makes my heart so happy.
Wishing you the most delicious holiday season!
Peace and Love,
