Instead of grabbing for a jar of jelly, get out some fresh fruit and whip up this sandwich for a fun dessert. Use any fruit combination you choose. I used apples and raisins because apples are quick and simple to cook and hold their shape well. To serve, cut in half. Or, make this a little fancier by slicing off the crust, cutting it into fourths, and drizzle with a little warm peanut butter sauce for the perfect two-bite dessert.
