Some Nourishment for YOU: Taffy Apple Pizza

Thanks so much for everyone's comments! You came up with some great ones. I felt very nourished all day to keep opening emails that said things like "Good job" and "Keep it up"--even though you weren't really saying those things to me :)

And your posts identify the reason why we have to work so hard to keep spouting these nourishing words instead of just blasting our kids with constant stop sign words: They want unlimited wii, no sleep schedule, junk food, constant Christmas...We want children with some sense of limits and control. We don't have the same agenda!

Anyway, keep 'em coming as you think of them or (hooray!) actually use them. In the meantime, enjoy this surefire crowd-pleasing recipe:

Taffy Apple Pizza

1 package (18 oz) refrigerated sugar cookie dough, softened (This is easier if you choose a kind that’s already rolled out into a sheet.)
1 package (8 oz) cream cheese
1/2 c brown sugar
1/4 creamy peanut butter
1/2 t vanilla
2 medium granny smith apples
1/4 c caramel ice cream topping
1/2 c peanuts

Bake dough 16-19 minutes at 350 degrees.
Remove and cool.
Mix topping of cream cheese, brown sugar, peanut butter, and vanilla.
Spread over cookie dough.
Peel apples, slice thinly, and arrange over top; lay ‘em on thick.
Sprinkle with cinnamon
Microwave caramel 30 seconds, then drizzle over apples.
Sprinkle with peanuts.
