Delectable little jam penny sandwiches, perfect for a Royal tea party or for the children's tea or supper. I have used a seven grain sliced bread in my sandwiches as shown in the photo, and my home-made strawberry jam too!
Cut the crusts off the sliced bread and put to one side for breadcrumbs or bread pudding. Spread the crust-less sliced bread with the butter on one side only, just as if you were making normal sandwiches.
Spread the jam of your choice over one side of the buttered bread and then sandwich together with another buttered slice.
Using a small pastry or biscuit/scone cutter, cut out 4 small circles from the jam sandwiches. Eat the jammy off-cuts, or put to one side for a steamed pudding or a bread pudding!
Arrange the jam pennies on a plate alongside a pot of tea and other tea time treats.
