Cream Cheese And Cucumber Sandwiches
Cream Cheese Cucumber Sandwiches aren’t just for fancy tea parties. They make for a wonderful light lunch in the summer time. The flavor is so light even kids enjoy them (though I usually leave the chives off for them).
For a fun lunch with your daughter or granddaughter, make a batch of these along with a pot of herbal tea and invite her and her favorite dolls for a tea party 🙂
Cream Cheese Cucumber Sandwiches
- 2 medium cucumbers (seeded and chopped
- 8 oz. cream cheese (softened)
- 1 tsp. chives (finely chopped)
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 stick of butter
- 1 loaf of bread
Peel cucumbers,remove seeds and chop. Mix in cream cheese,chives and salt. Spread a thin layer of butter on each slice of bread. Then spread cucumber mixture on top of buttered bread and top with another piece of bread. Cut the crust off the sandwich and cut diagonally. Chill for at least 2 hours. before serving.
If you are making these for a fancy tea party for little girls take some large cookie cutters (flowers, stars and hearts work well) and use them to cut the finished sandwiches into fun shakes. Do not cut the crust off or cut the sandwich diagonally. Just press the cookie cutters into the finished whole sandwiches.
You’ll have quite a bit of leftover sandwich. They make a quick lunch for you.
