JULY 4TH: Star-Shaped Sandwich Skewers

We loved this idea from Smucker’s, which uses its creamy Jif peanut butter and seedless strawberry jam to make these charming sandwiches.

You don’t have to use PB&J: Any sweet or savory spread will do. You can make some very sophisticated combinations for adults.

Prep time is 15 minutes.

RECIPE: STAR-SHAPED SANDWICH SKEWERS

Ingredients For 1 Serving

  • 3 slices white or whole wheat bread
  • 1 tablespoon creamy peanut butter
  • 1 tablespoon seedless strawberry jam
  • Large fresh strawberries, halved
  • Seedless green grapes
  • Skewers
  •  
    Variations

    You can use other spreads:

  • Chicken mousse pâté and fig jam
  • Cream cheese and raisins
  • Goat cheese and beets
  • Tapenade and julienne of carrots and celery

    Try more sophisticated breads, too, like brioche, date nut bread, Irish soda bread, olive bread or walnut bread.
     

    Preparation

    1. CUT 10 shapes from bread using 2-inch star-shaped cookie cutter.

    2. SPREAD peanut butter (or ingredient of choice) on half the stars and jam on remaining stars. Press together to make five small sandwiches.

    3. THREAD the sandwiches, strawberry halves and grapes alternately onto skewer. Serve immediately.
