How to make Apple Pie Toasties

I’ve always been a huge fan of apple pie but, to be honest, I feel like very few restaurants get it right! I’ve never attempted making it on my own because I was scared that it would be a huge flop!

This recipe looks easy and I heard that these toasties are divine! 😉



160g Cream Cheese

4 Tbsp. Icing Sugar

½ tsp Cinnamon

4 Granny Smith Apples (sliced into rounds and deseeded)

Butter for frying

4 Tbsp. Demerara Sugar (you can also use brown sugar)

30g Raisins

8 slices Sasko Plus Rosehip and Honeybush Brown Bread

80g Butter (softened)

Whipped Cream/Ice Cream to serve


(Either use a non-stick frying pan or a sandwich/panini press to make these.)

Fry the apple slices in batches in your sandwich or panini press or in a non-stick pan in a little butter until just browned and slightly softened.

Set aside to cool and clean the sandwich/panini press or frying pan.

Mix the cream cheese, icing sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl until well combined.

Smear each slice of the bread with equal amounts of the cinnamon-cream cheese

Top half of the slices of bread with a sprinkling of raisins.

Place a layer of apple slices on top of the raisins.

Sprinkle 1 Tbsp. of Demerara sugar over the apples and cover with another layer of apples.

Seal each sandwich with the remaining slices of bread (with the cinnamon-cream cheese side facing down.)

Butter both sides of the sandwiches.

Toast in your sandwich/panini press or fry in a non-stick frying pan, turning once, until crisp and toasted.

Serve warm with whipped cream/ice cream.

Enjoy! 😉

I am going to try making this soon and I will report back with feedback! Let me know if you’ve tried it too.
