"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!)

Apple Peanut Butter Sandwich
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
Quarter, core, and slice the apple into thin slices.
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.
Place apple slices over the peanut butter in a single layer. Top with another slice of bread. Cut in half.
