Try this apple and cookie butter dessert sandwich when you need a quick sweet treat. You're only minutes away from melty, sweet goodness.
Sometimes you just want to indulge in a quick sweet treat, using ingredients you have in the house and can make in a flash. I love to simplify my life by creating fun new recipes from things I already have on hand.

This recipe fits the bill. Who needs to stand over the stove slaving over some fancy dessert when really, all you need is a little something for your sweet tooth?

Grilled dessert sandwiches are perfect for a quick sweet treat. Start with 2 slices of cinnamon raisin bread (my favorite!). Smear the outside of each slice with butter, smear the inside with cookie butter, add a layer of thinly sliced apples, and grill. Voila! Melty inside with sweet apples, and a crispy outside.

If you’re not familiar with cookie butter, it looks somewhat like peanut butter but instead of nuts, it’s made of speculoos cookies. Cookie butter is very similar to Biscoff spread and the two products can be used interchangeably. The flavor of cookie spread is reminiscent of ginger bread. It’s also available at Trader Joe’s. 

But feel free to make this sandwich with peanut butter or another nut spread for a fun lunch treat.  It’s probably not something you want to indulge in daily, but great for a once in awhile treat!  And it’s super simple to make. Because when you have two kids, simplifying your life is something that becomes very, very important to you. My daughter would just adore this sandwich made with peanut butter for lunch. Give her the rest of the apple along side of the sandwich and you’re golden!

As golden as the outside of the bread. So tasty and perfect.

I partnered with Land O’Lakes to bring you this post. They are helping you simplify your life by creating a wonderful spreadable butter. Three ingredients: Sweet cream, canola oil and salt!

Now that is something that I truly love. I hate those loooong ingredient lists of things I have never heard of.  I’m always trying to create things myself to avoid those long lists. For example, my slow-cooker refried beans and my favorite taco seasoning.

And this is new information to me: Land O’Lakes is a farmer owned cooperative which produces the sweet cream that is churned into Land O’ Lakes® Butter, and they’ve been doing that for more than 90 years! Isn’t that wonderful?

Try this dessert sandwich either with cookie butter or peanut butter, and begin simplifying your life by occasionally taking the easy way out when you’re cooking. You deserve it. We all deserve it.
