Cap off a stargazing or sing-along evening around the campfire with cherry sweet treats!
Updated Jul 5, 2006

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened
  • 8 slices white sandwich bread
  • 1/3 cup cherry pie filling
  • 1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons sugar, if desired

Steps

  • 1
    Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Spread butter on 1 side of 2 slices of bread. Place 1 slice, butter side out, on sandwich press. Spoon one-fourth of the pie filling onto center of bread. Top with one-fourth of the cream cheese. Top with other slice of bread, butter side out. Close press; trim excess bread.
  • 2
    Grill over campfire or on grill 4 to 6 inches from medium heat 15 to 18 minutes, turning once, until bread is golden brown and cream cheese is melted. Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon of the sugar. Repeat with remaining ingredients. Serve warm.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    A sandwich press is a long-handled, metal, clam-shell-type holder that can be used over a campfire or grill. There is a small electric appliance also called a “sandwich maker” or “sandwich press” that can do the same task right in your kitchen.
  • tip 2
    Use strawberry jam or grape jelly instead of the cherry pie filling.
  • tip 3
    When backpacking, pack firm rather than soft white bread in a rigid plastic container to prevent squishing.
