When I eat a sandwich, I want it to be both filling and delicious. This hearty sandwich is packed with sauteed and very lightly sweetened cinnamon apples and peanut butter. Warm, gooey, and a little messy, this will please both kids and adults! I used Smooth Operator here it can also be made with Mighty Maple, The Bee’s Knees, or Old Fashioned Crunchy.

3. Cover the pan and simmer the apples for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. The apples should be slightly soft but still crisp.

4. Add the vanilla to the pan and mix the apples to make sure that the vanilla gets incorporated.

5. Remove the apples to a plate and leave behind any liquid in the pan.

6. Melt another tablespoon of butter in the pan. Spread 1–1 1/2 tablespoons of peanut butter on one side of each piece of bread.

7. Divide the sauteed apples in half and place each half on one piece of bread.
