Using a round cookie cutter, cut each bread slice into a circle, removing the crusts.
Spread peanut butter in the centers of half of the bread slices, leaving some space around the edges.
Spread a teaspoon of jelly in the center of the other half of the slices.
Top each jelly-covered slice with a peanut butter-covered one.
Seal the sandwiches by pressing down all along the edges with a spoon or fork.
Serve as is, or freeze to serve at a later time.
To freeze, lay out sandwiches on a large baking sheet & place in the freezer for 2-4 hours. Once frozen, remove from the baking sheet & store in a large zip-top freezer bag. If packing for a child’s lunch, remove from the freezer bag & place in lunchbox – they will be thawed by lunchtime. To serve straight from the freezer, defrost in the microwave for 30-60 seconds, checking at 30-second intervals.
Tip: you can use this recipe with a variety of fillings, such as chocolate-hazelnut spread, marshmallow fluff, fruit preserves, etc.
