An upgrade to a store-bought pie will make your day even sweeter!
Place 4 slices lightly buttered sourdough bread, butter side down, on a work surface. Top each with 1/3 cup shredded sharp cheddar, 1 slice apple pie (one-eighth of a 9-inch pie), salt and pepper, 2 slices ham and another 1/3 cup cheese. Top with 4 more slices buttered bread, butter side up. In panini press or skillet, cook on medium-high until golden brown, about 7 minutes in press or 3 to 4 minutes per side in skillet.
