All American Apple Pie Grilled Cheese Sandwich

In one of our date night cook offs, my husband and I decided to make grilled cheese sandwiches.  After we had our fill of savory sandwiches, I  had the idea to attempt a dessert grilled cheese using Sara Lee Pound Cake as the “bread.”  In the end, we didn’t make one dessert grilled cheese; we made TWO–apple pie grilled cheese and a dark chocolate raspberry grilled cheese. (We’ll post that recipe later :))


Apple Pie Filling

1 Gala Apple

1/3 c. brown sugar

½ tsp cinnamon

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 tsp lemon juice

2 tsp cornstarch


Sliced Brie (3 oz. per sandwich)


Pound cake (2 slices/sandwich)

Dipping Sauce

Reserved Apple Pie Filling Juice

2 TBSP orange blossom honey


In a saucepan, combine apples, brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, lemon juice, and cornstarch.  Cook over medium heat until thick and bubbly.  Remove and cool.


Place 3 slices of brie onto each slice of cake.  Place 2-3 TBSP drained apple pie filling on bottom cake.  Place on sandwich top.  Brush sandwich with melted butter.  Grill at 325 degrees for 2-4 minutes.  Flip and repeat.  If bread is browning too quickly, reduce heat.  Grill until cheese melts.

Dipping Sauce
In a small bowl, stir together apple pie filling juice and honey.   Drizzle on plate and serve on the side.
