Cream Cheese and Jelly Sandwich

Delish logo Delish 8/17/2022 Laura Rege

Just like mom used to make it (or your dad...or your roommate), this soul-soothing snack is best enjoyed with a rom-com and a cozy knit blanket. Besides the two star ingredients (cream cheese and jelly, of course), the twist here is that Sara Lee's velvety Butter Bread is also topped with cinnamon and lemon zest to give this sandwich an unexpected brightness.
