While simple in nature, a peanut butter and jelly sandwich can be dissected into an art, and if you follow this recipe, you'll make one perfectly, every time.

Ingredients

  • slices bread of choice
  • knife-butter scoops crunchy or smooth peanut butter
  • knife-butter scoop jam

Directions

Lay 1 slice of bread out on a cutting board. Starting in the middle, add the 2 knife-scoops of peanut butter, and spread it evenly into the corners using the blunt end of your knife. Repeat with the jelly on the other slice, carefully so that you don't puncture the bread. Top 1 slice with the other, cut in half, and serve. 

Peanut Butter Shopping Tip

If you're looking for a smoother texture in your finished product, try using confectioners' sugar (also known as 10x sugar) instead of granulated sugar.

Peanut Butter Cooking Tip

Think beyond cakes and pies – fruits like peaches, pineapple, and figs are excellent grilled – brush with melted butter or wine and sprinkle with sugar and spices for a dessert that you can feel good about.
