Recipe for butter finger sandwiches:

1 stick frozen butter (sweet, if possible)
6 tbsp liquid peanut butter
6 tbsp apple butter
Warm sharp knife.
1/4 c. flour (whole wheat works well)
2 tbsp brown sugar

Preparation: Warm a sharp knife for cutting the butter. If your peanut butter is not easily spreadable when refrigerated, separate out 5 tbsp of it and mix in 1/2 tbsp peanut oil and 1/2 tbsp cream, then rechill. Sift the flour and sugar together in a small bowl.

  • Flour hands and a cutting board with the flour mixture.
  • Slice frozen butter into millimeter-thick squares with the knife, and place on the board.
  • Alternately spread peanut butter and apple butter on the upturned faces of the butter slices (with a cold knife).
  • Flip each peanut-buttered butter slice onto the neighboring apple-buttered butter slice. Place the resulting sandwiches on a sugared serving plate.
  • Refrigerate until ready to eat.

Bon appetit!   Makes ~50 finger sandwiches (serves 10).

I can feel my choleterol increasing just from reading that recipe.

Butter finger sandwiches cannot possibly be as yummy as honey cake.

I like how many ‘butter’ ingredients there are.. apple butter, peanut butter, and of course… butter!
