Grilled Apple Pie & Cheddar Dessert Sandwiches
6 slices Nature’s Own 100% Whole Wheat or Whitewheat Bread
1 cup canned apple pie filling
1/4 cup raisins or dried cranberries
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice
Butter at room temperature
3 slices (3/4 ounce each) sharp Cheddar cheese
Vanilla ice cream
Caramel sauce (optional)
Place pie filling in medium bowl and break up apple slices with a spoon. Add raisins, lemon juice and spice; mix well.
Butter 1 side of each bread slice. Turn over.
Place cheese on unbuttered sides of 3 bread slices. Divide apple mixture evenly among 3 bread slices, spreading almost to edges.
Top with remaining bread slices, buttered sides out.
Grill sandwiches in 12-inch skillet or griddle about 2 minutes per side or until evenly toasted.
Remove sandwiches to cutting board. Cool briefly before cutting into quarters with a serrated knife.
Arrange 2 or 3 sandwich quarters on each plate with a scoop of ice cream. Drizzle with caramel sauce, if desired. Serve immediately.
