  • Dot the cream cheese/fruit over the bread layers, squishing cheese/fruit down slightly.
  • Cover with the remaining 1 1/2 cups of white bread and the remaining 1 1/2 cups of whole wheat bread, again alternating so the two types of bread are spread around, again pressing down to create an even top layer.
