This post is the fourth in a five day collaborative series with Non-Baker titled The Tea Party. Go to Non-Baker to read about the delicious cakes and custard that we enjoyed at our Tea Party and about how to find happiness in the kitchen!
Yesterday I wrote about kid-approved "Deviled" Egg Salad Sandwiches.
Today, I am going to write about the other finger sandwich that I contributed to our tea party: peanut butter and jelly hearts.
Remember, I was aiming for simple. Keep it simple, and bring people together.
Use a cookie cutter on your bread. I found if I cut it out just right, I could get three hearts out of a single piece of bread. (Don't worry, I saved the crusts for a breakfast casserole recipe that I will be posting next week after the series is over!)
Peanut butter first, and then top with jelly. Keep it simple, and bring people together.
I put the jelly in a sandwich bag and clipped the corner to make it go on more easily. It's certainly not anything like decorating with frosting, because it's essentially made out of very stretchy chunks, but it worked well enough. In other words, I had to squelch my inner control freak and go with the flow. Keep it simple, and bring people together.
It all worked out to be lovely in the end.
Cheers from the farm,
