Another addition to our summer fruit series! Who doesn’t love a good cherry? They’re sweet, juice, and after you’re done, you can have pit-spitting contests. Boy and I took some lovely cherries and turned them into a cherry pie Toas-Tite.
- 8-10 cherries (depending on size and your desire to really stuff the Toas-Tite sandwich)
- 2 slices of white bread
- Unsalted butter, softened
- Sugar to taste (optional)
- Carefully slice all the way around each cherry with a paring knife and peel the fruit away from the stone. It’s up to you if you’d like to do this in halves or quarters or another way! Boy and I opted to just make one big slice around each cherry from the top of the stem, down to the bottom, and all the way back up again.
- Butter one side of each slice of bread and get it prepped in the Toas-Tite pie iron with the buttered side facing the iron.
- Place your cherries on top of the center of on slice of bread. Sprinkle on some sugar if your cherries aren’t quite as sweet as you like.
- Close up the Toas-Tite pie iron, trim off the excess bread, and toast away!
- Remove the sandwich from the iron, let cool, and enjoy.
Notes From The Kitchen
While cherry pie isn’t the first thing I order from a menu, I would gladly pay money for a fresh cherry Toas-Tite. It was a great dessert sandwich – not too juicy, sweet but not overly so, and it’s just a downright yummy way to eat cherries.
