I am obsessed with the thought of frying things on white bread, which led to being obsessed with the thought of frying things IN white bread. These fried peanut butter and jelly pinchy pies are the result.

Outstanding PP&J Pinchy Pies!! I tried it with thin sliced ham and various cheeses. All had their own pop as it were; however I found American cheese the best in my humble opinion.
