Ramadan Food Ideas: Lantern Sandwiches
In some Muslim cultures, lanterns are heavily associated with Ramadan. Before electricity, lanterns were carried outdoors to help spot the crescent moon which indicates the start of Ramadan. For a fun treat for kids, make lantern sandwiches with peanut butter and jam – the jam gives the lanterns a stained glass look!
Ingredients and Supplies
- Peanut butter
- Lantern cookie cutter
- Lightly toast bread. Use cookie cutter to cut out lantern shape on bread.
- On another piece of bread, spread a layer of peanut butter followed by a layer of jam.
- Place bread with lantern shape on top of peanut butter and jam bread to make a sandwich.
Tip: Use the cut out lantern pieces to make mini sandwiches.
