U.S. Metric Conversion chart
2 tablespoon(s) unsalted butter, at room temperature (see Note)
8 slice(s) bread
1/2 cup(s) nonpareils, jimmies, confetti, or sparkling sugar
Spread a thin layer of butter on one side of each slice of bread. Use cookie cutters to cut out shapes from 4 of the buttered slices.
Place the uncut slices, buttered side up, on a plate or over a bowl to catch excess sprinkles. Cover with sprinkles. Top with the cut-out slices, buttered side down.
