Welcome Spring!! I am so looking forward to tulips, daffodils, and the Easter Bunny. The last of the snow has melted away, and I believe *fingers crossed* that Mother Nature has finally told Old Man Winter to hit the road! There seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel.
On to lunch…My kids love Peanut Butter Jelly. And when I say “love”, I mean that they are strongly obsessed. The minute (ok, second) Preston wakes up in the morning, he starts his rant of wanting PBJ for lunch. When I created this recipe though, it was a cold and wet day, and so something warmer and gooier than the typical PBJ was in order. These Baked PBJ Roll Ups hit the spot and couldn’t be easier. They work great as a quick lunch or a snack. I wouldn’t object to them for a breakfast either!
- Cookie sheet
- 8 t. peanut butter
- 8 t. jam or jelly
- 8 Honey Butter Flavored Pillsbury Crescent Rolls
Open and separate the crescent dough into 8 triangles. On the widest part of each triangle, place about 1 t. of peanut butter and 1 t. of jam. No need to measure, just smear it in there. Pinch together the sides of the crescent and roll, sealing the peanut butter and jam inside. Bake on a metal cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 9-11 minutes, until golden brown. Let cool on a wire rack for a few minutes before enjoying the ooey gooey goodness.
I found these Pillsbury Honey Butter Flavored Crescent Rolls at Target. I’m not sure if they are new to the world, or just new to me. They have a great flavor though and really worked well with these PBJs. Regular Crescent Rolls would also do just fine if you can’t find these.
I also used creamy peanut butter, but I’m curious to try them with crunchy for some added texture. Final shout out to my buddy Lisa who provided the homemade jam!!
