Directions

{{model.addEditText}} Print
  1. In a bowl, mix the cream cheese, dulce de leche, and cinnamon until thoroughly combined. Spread 2 slices of bread with the mixture, half on each slice. Divide the apple slices in half, and arrange the slices on top of the cream cheese topping. Top with remaining bread slices to make 2 sandwiches.
  2. Spray a large non-stick skillet with cooking spray, and place over medium heat. Pan-fry the sandwiches until toasted and golden brown on each side, about 3 minutes per side.

Footnotes

  • Editor's Note
  • Dulce de leche is sweet candy spread made by cooking milk and sugar down to its golden caramel essence. Look for it in Hispanic grocery stores and specialty foods stores.
  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

I love all the ingredients in this individually, and was sure based on the reviews putting them together would be fantastic, but it was just okay. Not bad, but not anything to write home about....
