    slices dense bread
  • 2 12
    tablespoons smooth peanut butter
  • 14
    large apple, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1 - 1 12
    tablespoon jelly (use your favorite, raspberry or strawberry taste especially good) or 1 -1 1/2 tablespoon jam (use your favorite, raspberry or strawberry taste especially good)
  • cooking oil, for the pan (if needed)
  • 1
    tablespoon softened butter


  • Have your child spread half of the peanut butter on 1 slice of bread. Next, he should spread the jelly or jam over the peanut butter and press the apple slices into the jam.
  • Spread the other slice of bread with more peanut butter and then gently press it, spread side down, onto the slice covered with apples.
  • Use a piece of paper towel to rub an unheated heavy skillet with a little cooking oil. Place the skillet over moderate heat.
  • While the pan heats, spread half of the softened butter on each of the outer surfaces of the sandwich. Carefully place the sandwich in the pan and grill it on each side for 3 to 3 1/2 minutes, until golden brown.
  • Using a spatula, transfer the sandwich to a cutting board and cut it in half before serving.
