Apple Butter & Pumpkin Butter Sandwiches

For my Harvest Festival lunch, I made two kind of delicious fall sandwiches: apple butter and havarti and pumpkin butter and cheddar. They were so good! For added cuteness, I cut them out into pumpkin shapes using a cookie cutter and served on a platter with grapes, nuts, and some rosemary from my garden. There’s…

Turkey Peach Panini
