“What? You’ve never eaten an apple peanut butter sandwich?!” declared my young friend Aldie (11) upon hearing that no, I had not, and indeed somehow that rite of childhood had passed me by. “They’re so easy! And good. And good for you,” she added. You know what? She’s right. PB&J, move over. It’s time for PB&A.
For those of us who might have any lingering doubts as to how truly easy this sandwich is to make, Alden has prepared a short video on exactly how to make one. (Food Network, watch out!)
One apple will yield enough apple slices for 2 to 4 sandwiches, depending on the size of the apple and the size of the bread.
- Peanut Butter
- Sliced Bread
1 Quarter, core, and slice the apple into thin slices.
2 Spread peanut butter over one slice of bread, going all the way to the edges. Make sure to use enough peanut butter so that the apple slices stick.
3 Place apple slices over the peanut butter in a single layer. Top with another slice of bread. Cut in half.
