Instructions
Sauce:
  1. Melt butter and whisk in onion powder and seasoned salt. Set aside and make sandwiches.
Sandwich:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice rolls in half horizontally so you have a top and bottom half, not tearing rolls apart. Place bottom half of rolls on a baking sheet. Spread the bottom layer of rolls with about half a jar of Unicoi Preserves Apple Cider Pepper Spread, then layer the shaved ham, add a layer of sliced cheese, then the shaved turkey and another layer of sliced cheese.
  2. Spread yellow mustard lightly on the cut side of the bun tops, then place it on top of the meat and cheese and bottom bun.
  3. Use a silicone brush and brush the sauce on the assembled sandwiches.
  4. Wrap with foil and bake in a preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until cheese is melted. Remove foil and bake for another 5 minutes to lightly brown the buns.
  5. Optional: Sprinkle with finely minced parsley and serve with apple slices.
  6. Make ahead directions: Assemble sandwiches but do not sauce them. Place sandwiches back in original Kings Hawaiian tray and bag, store in refrigerator or cooler until needed. When ready to serve, simply make the sauce then brush sandwiches with it and follow above baking directions. Sandwiches may need to bake a little longer with the foil on depending on how cold they are.

Apple Pie Sundaes are a twist on a traditional apple pie a la mode.  We created and presented this recipe in Ingles Chef’s Kitchen at the 2018 Spring Southern Home & Garden Show. Cooking the apples with our award winning Apple Cider Pepper Spread and spices make for a delicious layer of warmth over vanilla bean ice cream. Served with a piece of Cabot Cheddar cheese pie crust, this is your new favorite apple pie, deconstructed.

Ingredients
Cheddar Cheese Pie Crust
  • 3/4 cup unbleached all purpose flour
  • 4 Tablespoons unsalted butter, cold, cut into small pieces
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Kosher Salt
  • 1/2 Cup Cabot Sharp White Cheddar Cheese, Grated
  • 1/4 teaspoon Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 3 Tablespoons Water, ice cold
Apple Pie Filling
  • 4 cups Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons butter, unsalted
  • 2 Tablespoons Unicoi Preserves Apple Cider Pepper Spread
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 Teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Nutmeg
  • Dash cayenne pepper
  • Pinch Kosher Salt
  • 2 Tablespoons All purpose flour, Optional
Servings: people
Instructions
Pie Crust Instructions:
  1. In a food processor, combine flour, salt and butter. Pulse to combine until the mixture looks like coarse meal. Add shredded cheese, pulse 3 times. Add 3 Tablespoons ice water and cider vinegar. Pulse to combine, just until the dough is moistened and will stick together when pressed with your fingers. Turn the dough out on to your pastry board and knead just until it comes together. Wrap the dough in plastic and refrigerate at least 30 minutes, longer is better.
To bake pie crust:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough out into an approximately 12” circle/oval. This does not have to be a perfect shape, just roll it out so it’s a uniform thickness. Bake for 20-30 minutes, until lightly golden. Transfer to a cool racking and cool before serving. Break the pie crust into irregular size pieces to serve with the Apple Pie Sundaes.
To make apple pie filling:
  1. Melt butter and light brown sugar in a large sauce pan and cook over medium high heat until combined. Add all remaining ingredients except flour and continue to cook over medium high heat, stirring frequently for 10-12 minutes until sauce is reduced and apples are tender, but still have a little bite to them.
  2. Optional: If your apples give off a lot of liquid, stir in the flour and continue to cook a few minutes to thicken the sauce. If your apples weren't very juicy, you won't need to do this.
Assembly
  1. Scoop Laura Lynn Vanilla Ice Cream into individual serving bowls, top with warm apples and a few pieces of cheddar cheese pie crust.

Here’s a festive, delicious and easy recipe that travels well because you put it together when you get to your holiday party. I served this at Elder’s Ace Hardware Christmas Open House in Chattanooga, Tennessee, a three hour trip from our home. I simply packed my Palmetto Pimento Cheese in a cooler and took some of our Strawberry Vanilla Spread and the rest of my supplies in a basket.

Delicious recipe inspired by Palmetto Pimento Cheese, paired with Unicoi Preserves Strawberry Vanilla and Front Porch Pecans.
Ingredients
  • 24 oz. Palmetto Pimento Cheese Original, Jalapeno or Bacon
  • 2 jars Unicoi Preserves Strawberry Vanilla Spread
  • Front Porch Sea Salt Roasted Pecans
  • Crackers
Servings:
Instructions
  1. Spoon Palmetto Pimento Cheese in a round wreath shape on your party platter. I chose a platter that had a lip so I just followed the line. If your platter doesn't have an interior lip, simply put a glass in the middle to leave space and spoon your pimento cheese in a circle. This doesn't have to be perfect.

  2. Decorate the pimento cheese wreath with pecans.

  3. Roll dough to approx. 1 inch thickness and cut with biscuit cutter. Tip: To get the best rise, cut straight down, don't twist the cutter.

  4. Place into a lightly greased cast iron skillet, with biscuits touching. My pan held 9 biscuits and I had a little dough left over.
  5. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Baking time will depend on how thick you have rolled them, so keep an eye on them!

  6. Serve warm with butter and Unicoi Preserves. Leftovers? Split them in half and toast them under the broiler. Extra delicious!
