    Use one tablespoon to butter the outsides of four slices of bread. Leave insides unbuttered.

    Turn buttered sides down, and divide ½ cup cheese between the unbuttered sides. 

    Top with the remaining apple slices, cheese and bread. Make sure buttered sides are out. 

    Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. 

    When pan is hot, add the sandwiches, buttered side down, and cook until well browned. Flip when one side is down, and repeat other side until the cheese is melted, about 2 minutes per side. 

    Remove to cutting board and slice in half. 

    Serve immediately.
