NOTE from Lara: These sandwiches have become my teen son's favorite meal and through his chemo treatments for leukemia, this is the one food item we know he will eat day in and day out! (see picture below)

1 pkg. (3-oz.) cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup whole berry cranberry sauce
1 Tbs. maple pancake syrup
1/4 tsp. pepper
8 slices bread (I recommend whole wheat potato bread)
3/4 pound sliced deli turkey (for extra flavor we like to saute the turkey in a little butter)
2 Tbs. butter, softened
Directions: In a small mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, cranberry sauce, syrup, and pepper until combined. Spread cranberry mixture thinly over all 8 slices of bread; on 4 of the slices top with turkey and then place another slice of bread (cranberry mixture on the inside) over the top sandwich style.Spread butter over both of sides of sandwiches. Cook in a preheated waffle iron or indoor grill according to manufacturer's directions for 2-3 minutes or until golden brown. Serves 4.
