But it was small. And I was nursing. My mammary glands made me do it. I whipped up a whopper of a fruit pizza a couple of weeks ago using my good ol’ standby sugar cookie recipe…and it was so darn good in such a naughty, naughty way. Feel free to halve the recipe below and press into a smaller pan, or just split the full recipe in half and roll out two thinner pizzas.

This is one of those fun, throw-together treats that’s perfect for everything from a slumber party to a baby shower. Sorry I said mammary glands. The Cast of Characters: my sugar cookie dough (recipe below), marshmallow creme, cream cheese, peaches, kiwi, blueberries…and whatever other fruit you’d like! Now, you could divide the dough in half, then roll out each half into thin, round pizzas. Or you could do what I done did… Tarte Tatin. Back around the turn of the last century, the Tatin sisters in Paris invented an upside-down apple pie for their pastry shop.

It must have been a success, since people are still making it over a hundred years later. If you like apple pie, except for the way the filling tends to run out when it’s hot, you’ll love this. The filling is almost entirely apple, and it holds it’s shape really well when serving.

While I have no problem making pie crust, so manypeople have had bad experiences making pie crust from scratch andhave just given up. It does take practice. This recipe was intriguing as it uses refrigerated pie crust. I normally do not like the texture of refrigerated pie crust as opposed to homemade but a homemade pie crust is unnecessary here. This pie is absolutely fantastic and after the hubby and I ate our share, we both agreed we prefer this apple pie to regular apple pie any day.

We are just done with regular apple pie…can you believe it?

I bought flour tortillas and apples, and then I used the flour tortillas for tacos. Still wanting some kind of fried apple pie dessert I used the egg roll wrappers I had in place of the flour tortillas. I know, I know frying dessert just makes it more sinful, but these are totally delicious. Maybe they would be good baked, but not as good as fried. UPDATE: I did an interview with the Casper Star-Tribune newspaper and they made a video of me making these Apple Pie Egg Rolls!
