Mon Chef Yummy – Apple-Scotch Pizza Dessert | Receipts

0

When you think of pizza, a dessert usually doesn’t come to mind. However, this apple and scotch pizza dessert is sure to please any foodie.

It’s as delicious as apple pie, but without the flaky pie crust since it’s made with cornflakes and baked in a 12-inch pizza pan. It has a hint of butterscotch flavor and takes less time to bake than a regular apple pie.

The cookie dough-like crust is thin but not too sweet, and the apple, butterscotch, coconut and oatmeal filling makes for a delicious dessert. An added surprise is what’s sprinkled with chopped nuts: grated cheddar cheese.

This delicious combination can only be enhanced by adding a dollop of whipped cream or vanilla ice cream to each serving.

SCOTLAND APPLE PIZZA DESSERT

Dough:

1 1/4 cup plain flour

3/4 cup crushed corn flakes or corn flake crumbs

2 teaspoons of sugar

1 teaspoon of salt

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon of cinnamon

1/2 cup butter or margarine

1/2 cup dairy sour cream

Filling:

2 cups (1 pound, 5 ounce can) prepared apple pie filling

1/2 cup quick cooking rolled oats

1/2 cup shredded coconut

1/2 cup butterscotch chips

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon of salt

Garnish:

1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese

1/2 cup chopped walnuts

In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine all topping ingredients, mix well. Put aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour with the crushed corn flakes, sugar, salt, baking powder and cinnamon. Cut in the butter, until crumbly. Add sour cream and mix until moistened

Press dough evenly into a lightly greased 12-inch pizza pan to form a crust. Bake the crust in a 375 degree oven for 15 minutes until slightly puffed.

Remove from oven; spread with filling. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese and nuts. Return to oven and bake for 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and crust is lightly browned.

Makes 10-12 servings. Serve hot or cold with or without a dollop of whipped cream or ice cream.
