It's like grilled cheese, but it's sweet and made with cookie dough!
I'm in love.
Makes 2 sandwiches, or double the recipe for 4.
4 thick a** slices of bread
1/2 cookie dough
1 Tbsp pumpkin puree
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 cup flour
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 cup almond milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/3 cup chopped nuts of your choice (walnut, pecan, almond, hazelnut, etc)
oil for cooking
Slice 4 pieces of bread at least 1/2 inch thick.
Lightly toast them in a toaster and set aside.
Mix cookie dough and pumpkin puree. Slather the mixture on 2 slices of bread nice and thick. Then take the other 2 pieces of bread and make them into sandwiches pressing firmly down on each piece so they're nicely stuck together.
In a bowl combine the flour, cinnamon, and salt.
In a separate bowl combine the almond milk and vanilla extract.
Heat a medium sauce pan with a Tbsp or so of olive oil.
Then coat your sandwiches, starting with the milk mixture and then the flour mixture. Do this twice for each sandwich.
Once the pan is warmed, fry the sandwiches on both sides for about 6 minutes until each side is golden brown.
Plate and top with chopped nuts and maple syrup. Or you can skip all that...pick it up like a sandwich and just go at it!
here's the before and after:
