|Mini Tea Sandwiches
A Tupperware recipe, at the Sneaky Kitchen
1 8-oz reduced fat Neufchatel cheese, softened
1-2 Tbsp mayonnaise
1 - 2 Tbsp. Veggie Delight Seasoning
6 slices whole wheat bread
1 large cucumber, scrubbed
in a Wonderlier bowl, mix together cheese,
mayonnaise, & Seasoning, with a spatula. Set aside.
Using a Midget Container or other cutter (in
a pinch, use an empty tomato paste can with both ends removed), cut out four
circles from each slice of bread (24 total rounds).
Score cucumber barely through the peel with a
sharp-tined fork. Thinly slice cucumber. Place a cucumber slice on
each piece of bread (you can anchor it if you wish with a tiny dab of the
cheese mixture underneath).
Fill a decorator bag with cream cheese mix, &
pipe filling onto each cucumber slice with open or closed star (in a pinch,
place mixture in a sandwich or freezer bag, seal, & slip a small corner off
the bag). Garnish as desired.
Possible garnishes: small bits of pimento
such as found in salad olives, pieces of chopped green or black olives,
watercress or parsley leaves, thin carrot slivers or curls, radish slivers,
celery heart slices, small bits of tomato peel. Use your imagination &
whatever you have on hand! Chill until ready to serve.
