Been picking lately???? Apples Day 3 of Autumn

What says Autumn more than Apple Picking?  Gingergold, Gala, Courtland, Red Delicious, Winesap, Fuiji - the list goes on and on for the variety of apples available.  Then you can make apple butter, apple muffins, applesauce, apple fritters, apple cider, and TAFFY APPLE PIZZA.  This is a simple and kid friendly dessert recipe that uses ready made ingredients for convenience.  Apple time can very much be the perfect family time!  So grab some cookie dough, cream cheese and apples and the kids and make this simple eye-pleasing dessert!
