Peanut Butter and Jelly Bean Biscotti, though not a replacement for the sandwich, is a decadent delite you just might want to try.
According to Wikipedia
The peanut butter and jelly sandwich or PB&J is a sandwich, popular in North America, that includes a layer of peanut butter and either jelly or jam on bread, commonly between two slices, but sometimes eaten open-faced or with one slice folded over.
A 2002 survey showed the average American will have eaten 2,500 of these sandwiches before graduating from high school.
History of PB&J
In the early 1900s, peanut butter was considered a delicacy that was only served in New York City's finest tearooms. The product was first paired with a diverse set of foods such as pimento,nasturtium, cheese, celery, watercress, and on toasted crackers. In a Good Housekeeping article published in May 1896, a recipe "urged homemakers to use a meat grinder to make peanut butter and spread the result on bread. In June of that same year, the culinary magazine Table Talk published a "peanut butter sandwich recipe. The first reference of peanut butter paired with jelly on bread to be published in the United States was by Julia Davis Chandler in 1901 in the Boston Cooking-School Magazine of Culinary Science and Domestic Economics. By the late 1920s, this sandwich eventually moved down the class structure as the price of peanut butter dropped. It became popular with children. During World War II, it is said that both peanut butter and jelly were found on U.S. soldiers' military ration list.
And the rest is history.
These Peanut Butter and Jelly Bean Biscotti, use jelly beans instead of jelly, as jelly would be liquefied by the heat of the oven, run out and burn. They are beautiful, nice peanut butter color with vibrant fruit red.
These are a bit DIFFERENT and not on my fist choice list, but I don’t really like jelly beans, so who cares about my opinion.
These might just be the way to get you kids to eat Biscotti.
