1 Cucumber Mint Tea Sandwiches

I love having high tea, especially with best friends at Claridge's in London or at the St. Regis with my Gigi! 
One of my favorite things about high tea are the dainty sandwiches! 
This is a wonderful twist on the original cucumber sandwich. . .
Now just add some tea, petit fours, and friends! :-)
Happy Monday! :-)
Cucumber Mint Tea Sandwiches
1/4 cup loosely packed fresh mint leaves
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tablespoons cream cheese
6 slices of bread
3-inch length of cucumber

Pick off some mint leaves and place them in a salad spinner or rinse them all by hand.
Dry the leaves and then dice . Place the cream cheese, butter, and mint into a bowl and mix well. It helps if the cream cheese and butter are softened ever so slightly. It should become a sort of herb paste. Slice the cucumbers -- how thick you'd like to slice them is up to what kind of crunch you want in your sandwich. Slice the crusts off the bread and slice the sandwich up into nice little finger-approved rectangles. Put the mint "paste" on each slice of bread and add the cucumbers!
Pin It!
