  1. Heat oven to 400°F. Line 2 cookie sheets with foil or cooking parchment paper. In 1-quart saucepan, heat brown sugar, corn syrup and butter to boiling over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Cook 5 to 7 minutes, stirring constantly, until thickened; remove from heat. Cool about 30 minutes. Stir in whipping cream and rum extract.

  3. In small bowl, beat cream cheese with electric mixer on medium speed until fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla on medium speed until blended.

  5. Spread half of cream cheese mixture over each pastry round. Arrange apple slices on cream cheese. Sprinkle with nuts. Drizzle about 1/4 cup caramel syrup over each pizza.
  6. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until puffy and golden brown. Pour remaining caramel syrup over hot pizzas. Serve warm.

Do-Ahead
Is life a little nutty? Doing some advance prep will help. Toast nuts in a shallow pan in a 350°F oven about 5 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown.
Time Saver
Use 1 cup caramel ice-cream topping instead of making the caramel syrup and don't peel the apples.
