  2. Spread six slices with jam, and then sanwich them together with the remaining buttered bread.
  3. Using a round pastry cutter, stamp out four circles from each sandwich.
  4. Arrange on a serving plate and serve as soon as possible.

Loved this -- jelly sandwich without the crust (and there is just something about a round sandwich!) :) Used white bread instead of brown bread. Thank you so much! :)

Just like the sandwiches I use to get when I lived in England. Bread, butter and home made strawberry jam, how much better can it get? I used potato bread and recently made jam. Made for ZWT6 Voracious Vagabonds.
