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