Elevate Peanut Butter And Jelly Sandwiches With A Swirl Of Cream Cheese
A luscious spread of cream cheese can add a satisfyingly rich and creamy texture to a basic PB&J sandwich, and its tanginess can complement the jam's sweetness.
Putting cream cheese on your next PB&J opens the door to other interesting toppings like strawberry, banana, sprinkles of nutmeg or cinnamon, or crunchy pieces of roasted nuts.
Start by using thinner spreads of peanut butter and cream cheese and adjust the amount that you use according to your palette.
If you're in a pinch, consider using whipped cream cheese, which comes softened, making it far easier to spread than a block of cream cheese.
