Cucumber Tea Sandwiches

Another classic English favorite, these are usually served with watercress tea sandwiches. Take a tip from my old catering days and garnish the tray with radish rosebuds and bunches of parsley!

What You'll Need:
  • 16 slices white bread
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup (1 ounce) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 1 teaspoon prepared yellow mustard (optional)
  • 1/2 of a medium cucumber, peeled and cut into 16 thin slices
What To Do:
  1. Using a 2-inch biscuit or cookie cutter, cut two bread rounds from the center of each slice of bread; discard the remaining scraps.
     
  2. In a medium bowl, with an electric beater on medium speed, beat the heavy cream, Cheddar cheese, cream cheese, and mustard (if desired) for 1 to 2 minutes, or until well blended.
     
  3. Spread evenly over eight bread rounds. Place a cucumber slice over the cheese mixture on each and top with the remaining bread rounds.
     
  4. Serve, or keep chilled until ready to serve.
Notes

These sandwiches can also be cut into squares by cutting the crusts off the bread, then cutting each slice into 4 squares - but you'll need more cucumber slices. The round shape is nice because it's the same size as the cucumbers.

Slice cuke with veg peeler to use on square breadslices. Cut each into fours for mini sandwiches.

I think you should spread it over 16 rounds and top it with the remainder instead of the eight. I haven't tried this yet, But you can't get 16 sandwiches if you spread it on the eight rounds only. You will have another 16 remainders to do. I think this just needs some clarification.

and don't throw away the remaining bread trimmings put them out for the birds they are all feeding young right now and they love the cheap snack cakes I put in the suet feeders for them
