A couple months ago, we started a web segment called Five Ingredients for WUSA 9. The goal is to find delicious recipes that you honestly don't even need to write down to remember. They're that easy!
This was the first recipe called 'Fall Fruit Pizza.' Summer is my favorite season and growing up, I loved fruit pizza with kiwi, blueberries, peaches and a strawberry glaze. So this is a twist on a childhood favorite.
To keep this recipe at five ingredients, it's not made from scratch. If this wasn't for TV, I would have substituted out the crust with a homemade snickerdoodle or sugar cookie crust. But store bought works too!
Cookie Dough (1 Roll)
Cream Cheese (8 oz)
Powdered Sugar (1.5 cups)
Apples (3-4 apples thinly sliced)
1. Roll the cookie dough out on a pizza pan. Bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes.
2. Let the cookie cool completely.
3. While it cools, mix cream cheese with powdered sugar.
4. Spread the cream cheese icing on top of cookie.
5. Arrange sliced apples on top of cream cheese.
6. Drizzle caramel on top and enjoy!
Journalists will eat anything. That's why I bring all of my baking experiments to the newsroom. Good or bad - it disappears.
But these cookies... Nothing I've baked has ever gone over as well as these cookies. Half way through the newscast, co-workers were coming up to me, texting me, and getting in my IFB to ask how I made them.
Well, that's a short conversation. Very short. Four ingredients short.
Peanut Butter (1 cup)
Sugar (1 cup)
Chocolate Chips (1.5 cups)
Mix peanut butter, sugar and eggs. Fold in chocolate chips. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes.
Try them. I'm with my co-workers on this one. It's one of the BEST cookies I've ever eaten (and you know I really like sweets - so I've eaten a cookie or two in my past).
