Fried peanut butter and jelly sandwich

Treehouse Snack Bar at David Burke Kitchen, New York City

Pastry chef Zac Young calls this miniature dessert “the love child of French toast and peanut butter and jelly.”

To make the fried peanut butter and jelly sandwich, he spreads small slices of brioche with peanut butter and housemade strawberry preserves.

Next, he soaks the sandwich in strawberry custard, rolls it in crushed corn flakes and deep-fries it.

Young serves two sandwiches with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for $5.
