Peanut Butter and Jelly Linzer Sandwiches

When I was in school – you know, back when dinosaurs walked the earth – lunch was easy. A sandwich, apple or carrot slices, and milk from the lunch line. Boom. Done. Now, though, it’s like going to school with a plain ol’ sandwich is almost a mark of death. It’s not that my kiddo is spoiled (mostly), but since she’s not eating at home I still want her to know that I put a little extra into her lunch. These Peanut Butter and Jelly Linzer Sandwiches are perfect for that. They’re just enough cute for her to show off to her friends, and healthy enough that I know she’ll be full until she gets home. Plus, on weekends these are so much fun to eat during backyard picnics. And don’t worry about the leftover bread…I use it to make these awesome Peanut Butter and Jelly Kabobs! Enjoy!
