Apple Cream Dream Sandwich

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by HeatherFeather

This is my re-creation of a sandwich I used to order often for lunch at a great restaurant in NY State. It may sound like a bizarre combination of ingredients, but it tastes very good and is a nice light luncheon choice. I also like this with cinnamon raisin bread.

It was yummy but you might want to specify between green and red apples, I used green and it was a little too much of a taste clash for me, so I assumed you meant red. I liked the sandwich, but liked it even more because it became the basis for a recipe of my own. Thanks, and mmmm

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 slices pumpernickel bread (or any bread you prefer) or 2 slices cinnamon raisin bread (or any bread you prefer)
  • 1 -2 tablespoon cream cheese (to taste) or 1 -2 tablespoon neufchatel cheese, softened (to taste)
  • 2 -3 slices apples, unpeeled (red delicious preferred)
  • raisins, to taste
  • chopped pecans, to taste
  • 1 -2 teaspoon celery, minced (to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon shredded cheddar cheese, to taste (or a slice of cheese)


  1. Toast bread lightly first (if desired, I usually do not); Spread bread slices with cream cheese.
  2. Place apple slices on top of the cream cheese on one of the toast slices.
  3. Sprinkle raisins, pecans, celery, and cheese to taste on the other piece of toast, pressing a little so these items stick to the cream cheese a bit.
  4. Put sandwich together, securing with a toothpick.
