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? All you do is take cinnamon-raisin bread (my favorite!), smear the outside with butter, smear the inside with cookie butter, layer in some apples, and grill. Voila! Melty inside, sweet apples, and a crispy outside.

I also love the idea of switching the cookie butter out for peanut butter for a fun lunch idea. Probably not something you want to indulge in daily, but a fun treat!  And super simple. Because when you have two kids, simplifying your life is something that becomes very, very important to you. My daughter would just adore this, 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 this 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.
