Scenes From Our Week - Week 35 including Caramel Apple Sweet-Za Recipe

We had a great 2nd week of summer!  The chore list began, but the days were still laid back and fun.  

Reagan has been begging to make this dessert ever since her latest AMERICAN GIRL magazine arrived.  So, since we had friends coming over Sunday night, we made her Caramel Apple Sweet-za and it was delicious. Scroll to the bottom of the post for the recipe.

On Monday, we celebrated Ali's 18th birthday with family and friends.  Can't believe she is all grown up!

With the chores starting this week so did the reading.  They are "supposed" to read 30 minutes a day.  Seeing the kids curled up with a book makes my heart do cart wheels!  Bennett got this book from his Godfather, Eric.  He is looking forward to chatting about with him at the end of the month!

1 roll refrigerated sugar cookie dough
1 8 oz pkg cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup peanut butter, creamy
1/2 brown sugar
2 TBS milk
2-3 apples
lemon juice
caramel sauce

Press the cookie dough into a greased 12-inch pizza pan.  Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes.  Let cool.

In bowl, mix together the cream cheese, peanut butter, brown sugar, and milk until smooth.  Use spatula to spread mixture on top of cooled cookie crust.

Cut apples into thin slices.  Toss slices in lemon juice so that they don't turn brown.  Arrange apples on top of cream cheese mixture.

Finish by drizzling caramel sauce over the apples.  To serve, cut the pizza into wedges.
