First I start off with Nature's Pride 100% Whole Wheat Bread. The slices are wide enough to hold a substantial amount of pumpkin butter and thick enough to hold up against the crisp apples. I toast them for this sandwich to add an extra crunch.
For the filling, start off with a nice tart Granny Smith apple. The Pumpkin butter is already very sweet so this is the perfect apple to balance out the flavors.
Halve the apple then quarter it. Core the pieces by cutting into each quarter diagonally with your knife in between the core and the flesh of the apple. Cut each quarter into thin slices. Squeeze a good amount of lemon juice over the slices, mix by hand and set aside.
Take two slices of the toasted Nature's Pride 100% Whole Wheat Bread. You can butter the outside of each bread with regular unsalted butter if you want to make it extra decadent.
Slather them with a good amount of Pumpkin Butter. You can find Pumpkin Butter at your local Trader Joe's. I got mine from my favorite high-end produce shop Wilson Farms.
