“This is posted for the World Tour 2005 RecipeZaar event. I haven't made these yet, but have tasted them. Very unique, easy and delicious. The source is my HEB grocery store - they made samples to promote the New Zealand apples. I doubt it's originally from New Zealand, but is a more contemporary idea for New Zealand ingredients. This makes a great dessert, after school snack, and they pack well to go. Note: you can substitute low or non-fat cream cheese and sour cream if desired.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Beat the cream cheese, sour cream, honey and orange zest together in a small bowl with an electric mixer. Spread each slice of pound cake evenly with the mixture.
  2. Core and slice the apple.
  3. Assemble the sandwiches: lay the apple slices on 4 of the cake slices, dividing equally; top with 4 more of the cake slices followed by the strawberry slices, and cover with the remaining cake slices. Cut the sandwiches in half on the diagonal, then secure with a decorative pick.
  4. Serve immediately, or cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.
