Strawberry Tea Sandwiches
Celebrate the fresh flavors of spring with these sweet-shaped, mini sandwiches. Perfect for brunch, lunch or a garden tea party, these tiny bites are big on flavor.
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons strawberry jam (or to taste)
1/4 teaspoon grated orange peel (optional)
3 to 4-inch round biscuit cutter or other fun cookie cutters
16 thin slices whole-wheat or white bread
1 cup sliced fresh strawberries
- Combine cream cheese and strawberry jam in bowl; stir in orange peel. Using biscuit cutter, cut each piece of bread into circles; discard excess.
- Spread about 2 tablespoons cream cheese mixture over half of the bread circles.
- Place about 4 strawberry slices on top of cream cheese mixture; top with remaining bread circles.
Makes about 16 servings.
Variation: Use 1/2 cup peeled, thinly sliced cucumber in place of strawberries. Fresh mint leaves are also a great addition to both strawberry and cucumber sandwiches.
