This Panini has all the flavors of Apple Pie between two crispy pressed slices of cinnamon bread. It's crispy, sweet deliciousness!
4tablespoonsbutter, at room temperature
8slicescinnamon raisin breadsliced from a dense bakery loaf
1Granny Smith or other firm applecored and thinly sliced
2tablespoonslight brown sugar
Either in a small bowl with a whisk or in a mini food processor, whip the mascarpone and honey together until well combined and fluffy.
Heat the panini press to medium-high heat.
For each sandwich: Spread butter on two slices of bread to flavor the outside of the sandwich. Flip over both slices of bread and spread 1 tablespoon sweetened mascarpone on each. Top one slice of bread with a layer of apples and close the sandwich with the other slice, buttered side up. Sprinkle some brown sugar on top.
Grill two panini at a time, with the lid closed, until the fillings are warmed and the bread is toasted, with a sweet crust, 3 to 5 minutes.
