THIS RESTAURANT IS NOW CLOSED.
A week ago my dear friend from Tried and Tried Again and I went out to lunch at Flour Girls & Dough Boys. I have been to this quaint bakery several times for their delicious artisan breads and desserts, but had never had lunch there. Every time I went, it seemed that the majority of people waiting in line were getting delicious-looking sandwiches so when my friend suggested going there for lunch, I thought specifically about getting a panini on their yummy cranberry walnut bread. I had bought that bread a couple times and enjoyed its nutty-fruity-chewiness, especially toasted! Mmmmm.
Having eaten the same bread before, my friend had the same idea so we split a full-sized Honey Butter Ham panini, which was served with chips for $7.00. They also serve half sandwiches, which is plenty for many of us since the bread is very dense. The ham panini has honey butter, ham, & provolone on cranberry walnut bread with a cranberry spread on the side so you can control how much you’d like on it. The sweet-salty ham was perfect with the sweet & nutty bread. The spread was milder than expected (we both thought it would be a stronger flavor like cranberry sauce, but it is quite light). We liberally spread the cranberry condiment on our sandwiches and thought it could have been a bit stronger and would have been even better.
We ended our meal by splitting a sweet treat – their Peanut Butter Brownie (a dense, chocolaty brownie topped with peanut butter cream and a layer of chocolate ganache on top). It was everything a peanut butter brownie should be, but I have a similar recipe in my files so making them at home would be a simple task.
Of course, we couldn’t walk away without buying loaves of the cranberry walnut bread to take home ($5 each). If you haven’t been there before, keep a close eye out for the sign on the north side of Main Street in American Fork, because it is tucked back away from the street. There is plenty of seating in a fun atmosphere (including a couple rooms tucked back on the side off of the main dining room) and they offer a children’s menu and have catering available. In addition to sandwiches, paninis and desserts, they serve breakfast, salads, soups, and meat pies.
