It's too hot to bake and I wanted something sweet. Taking my cue from the Bread Machine Applesauce Granola Bread that I had left and some peaches that needed using up, I built a fun and tasty dessert sandwich. Brioche or challah bread would probably work well as would other soft fruits. Experiment with what you have on hand. The results might surprise you!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 slice bread, sliced 1/2 inch thick
  • 29.58 ml cream cheese (use mascarpone if you have it)
  • 1 ripe sweet peach, peeled, pitted and thinly sliced
  • 9.85 ml sugar
  • freshly ground nutmeg (optional)
  • 19.71 ml butter
  • powdered sugar (to garnish)


  1. Slather 1 side of each bread slice with cream cheese.
  2. On 2 bread slices, arrange peaches accordion style; sprinkle peaches with sugar and nutmeg.
  3. Close up the sandwiches.
  4. Spread butter on 1 side of the bread.
  5. Put butter side down in medium-hot frying pan.
  6. Carefully butter top bread slices.
  7. Toast on each side until bread is golden brown, 3-4 minutes per side.
  8. Serve sprinkled with powdered sugar if desired.

I didn't really know what to expect with this recipe, but it sounded good so I tried it. SO glad I did, it's amazing!! What a fantastic sandwich idea!! It's slightly crunchy, soft and sweet all at once. It's just fantastic!

this is such a fun idea! i had a slightly squashed peach to get rid of and what a great way to do it! i was out of nutmeg, instead i used pumpkin pie spice. i have seen this done with apple, peaches are way better because you don't have to cook then first. this would also be a great idea for a dessert camping pie or in a toasted sandwich maker. thanks for sharing SusieQusie!
