Peanut Butter and Jelly Stars Recipe

Peanut Butter and Jelly Stars Recipe

These little sandwiches make the perfect finger foods for picky eaters.

What you'll need

  • 2 slices white bread
  • 2 slices whole wheat bread
  • Peanut butter
  • Jelly
  • 1 1/2-inch star cookie cutter

How to make it

  1. Use this recipe as an opportunity to teach your kids how to use cookie cutters and spread peanut butter and jelly on bread.
  2. TIP: Jazz up your sandwiches by using mini cookie cutters to cut puzzle pieces out of white and whole wheat bread. Swap the whole wheat shapes with the white, then press them into place.
  3. Using the star cookie cutter (available at party supply stores), cut two stars out of a slice of the white bread and two stars out of a slice of the whole wheat bread.
  4. Fit the whole wheat stars into the star-shaped holes in the white bread and the white stars into the whole wheat bread.
  5. Now the bread is ready for the peanut butter and jelly. Have your child use a table knife to smoothly spread on peanut butter and jelly, working slowly to avoid tearing the bread.
  6. Assemble the sandwich, then wrap in plastic. Makes 2 star-studded sandwiches.
