    When making the "perfect" peanut butter and jelly (PBJ) sandwich, what is the proper amount of peanunt butter and the proper amount of jelly to use? Is there a math formula for this question? I know you need to have a full glass of cold milk when serving this item but I'm a bit confused on the proper amounts of each ingredient.

    I need the advice of a sammie expert.

    Does this formula work with both crunchy and smooth peanut butter?

    When one of my kids was 2, I made him a PBJ and he busted out crying. "You made it upside down!"

    Don't make that mistake. :D

    I cover one piece with peanut butter, medium thickness, then put a few swipes on the other piece. I then use a chili spoon, and just one scoop. And trust me, I have done a good amount of testing.

    And crunchy peanut butter is no good.
