Updated Aug 14, 2006

Ingredients

Caramel Syrup

  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup corn syrup
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1/3 cup whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon rum extract or vanilla

Pizza

  • 2 medium cooking apples, thinly sliced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 package (3 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 package (17.3 oz) frozen puff pastry, thawed
  • 1 cup chopped nuts, toasted

Steps

  • 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.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, mix apples and lemon juice. Stir in granulated sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  • 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.
  • 4
    Roll each sheet of pastry into 10-inch square on foil-lined cookie sheet. Cut each pastry square into 10-inch circle. Place scraps in center; roll into pastry.
  • 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.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    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.
  • tip 2
    Use 1 cup caramel ice-cream topping instead of making the caramel syrup and don't peel the apples.
