Classic cucumber tea sandwiches with a savory, mildly pungent horseradish cream cheese.
1 large cucumber
1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2 to 3 teaspoons prepared horseradish
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon of onion powder
Fresh white or whole wheat bread, crusts trimmed
- Peel the cucumber, seed and chop finely. Set aside.
- Mix together the cream cheese, horseradish, salt and onion powder; fold in chopped cucumber.
- Spread cucumber filling onto buttered bread and top with another buttered slice of bread. Cut on the diagonal two ways to form 4 triangle-shaped sandwiches. Or, if desired, use cookie cutters to cut-out sandwich shapes.
Makes about 2 cups sandwich filling.
