Former Royal Chef Darren McGrady says that Queen Elizabeth ate her favorite snack, jam sandwiches (aka jam pennies), every day for more than 90 years. She first tried jam pennies as a little girl at her nursery, and has been a fan every since. They're called jam pennies because they're the size of an old English penny.

How could something so simple be the Queen's favorite? Well, we always say simple is best. Here's how to make jam pennies so you can enjoy them at home with your family.
