Squares: Cut each sandwich in half and then again in half crosswise.Triangles: Cut the sandwich in half diagonally, then cut each diagonal in half.Circles: Use a biscuit cutter to cut out rounds.Decorative Shapes: Cut out fun shapes with cookie cutters.
These sandwiches are best served right after assembling or at least within a couple hours. Do not make them ahead of time. The longer these sandwiches sit, the cucumbers will release moisture causing the sandwiches to get soggy. However, you can prepare the cream cheese spread up to 2 days in advance and keep it tightly covered in the refrigerator (then soften it before spreading on the bread.) You can also cut the crusts off the bread 1 day in advance. Cucumbers should be peeled and cut right before assembly.
Hade been craving cucumber sandwiches, so I used your recipe with one exception. I had to shred the cucumbers so my mom in law could enjoy them also. I used a strainer to strain the water out until ready to serve. I did put fine ground sea salt to help with keeping the cucumbers crisp. The flavor of the spread was spot on.
Who would have thought such a simple little cucumber sandwich would be so good, but these are! I did the finger food size for a ladies brunch and then proceeded to make regular sized sandwiches for myself every single day for a week. Thank you for sharing this!
Wow! I just made these for my moms birthday. Amazing. The spread is so easy and makes the entire sandwich. My son tried to sneak out with the left over spread. Probably the most important part is making the spread the day before to allow the flavors to blend and patting the cucumbers dry before assembling. Great recipe. Thank you.
This is, hands down, the best cucumber sandwich recipe I have ever had! I have tried a lot of them. The only adjustment I made was using minced garlic instead of the powder. This is my go-to recipe from now on!
By far this is my favorite Cucumber Sandwich recipe. All the spices and ingredients go so well with cucumbers. These sandwiches are quite refreshing, satisfying and not too heavy. My daughter loved them. My granddaughter (11) liked them. By mistake I put the cream cheese spread on both sides of the bread with hers. So next time I will make her one with the spread on only one side of the crust less bread. A winner recipe with my family.
i tried this recipe i only made six sandwiches three for me and three for my mom it was delicous we both loved it i just used half of a cream cheese thing and 2-3 spoon fulls of mayo and the rest i kinda just winged it i did have some leftover cream cheese stuff
The tea sandwich may take a number of different forms, but should be easy to handle, and should be capable of being eaten in two or three bites. It may be a long, narrow sandwich, a triangular half-sandwich, or a small biscuit. It may also be cut into other decorative shapes with a cookie cutter.
The bread is traditionally white, thinly sliced, and buttered. The bread crust is cut away cleanly from the sandwich after the sandwich has been prepared but before serving. Modern bread variations might include wheat, pumpernickel, sour dough or rye bread. The bread used for preparing finger sandwiches is sometimes referred to as sandwich bread.
Fillings are light, and are \"dainty\" or \"delicate\" in proportion to the amount of bread. Spreads might include butter, cream cheese or mayonnaise mixtures, and the sandwiches often feature fresh vegetables such as radishes, olives, cucumber, asparagus, or watercress. The cucumber tea sandwich in particular is considered the quintessential tea sandwich. Other popular tea sandwich fillings include tomatoes, pimento cheese, ham with mustard, smoked salmon with cream cheese, fruit jam, curried chicken, fish paste, and egg salad.
Even if you are not freezing the tea sandwiches ahead of time, consider freezing sliced bread alone. Freezing the bread before spreading and trimming makes for easier handling, especially if the bread is very fresh or tender.

I've given a tea following our neighborhood holiday house tour for the past 8 years so I've made a lot of tea sandwiches. Usually I buy bread (via the internet) from a wholesale baker who specializes in tea/sandwich bread but I don't know if you can get it shipped in time. I believe the name is Slim and Soft (or vice versa) & their slices are approx 12\"x12\" & thinner than a regular loaf. With the shipping, it seems expensive but can actually be cheaper than buying multiple regular loaves where there is a lot of crust/waste - & the large slices are a real time saver when you need 100 or so sandwiches.
Another thing I've learned is that no matter what kind of filling you use, be sure to use some type of 'adhesive', i.e. mayo,cream cheese, etc on BOTH pieces of bread & between any layers to hold the sandwich together after it's cut. Otherwise, they come apart & look sloppy on the serving plate.
That filling would go nicely in the bread shells: cut a square out of a piece of bread, press down in mini muffin pans, bake on a low heat until toasty and bread holds its shape, cool on a rack, fill and serve.
The tea sandwiches I have had in Great Britain are just any old kind of bread you like that goes with the filling. Something that is a color contrast. Then the crust is cut off and the sandwiches are cut into quarters. Either on the diagonal or square. People also use cookie cutters to make them in other cool shapes. I can't be bothered to do that and I can't be bothered to cut off the crust--too much waste for my taste. But I guess the idea is they are iniform and you can see more of the filling that way.
I have done the premade phyllo cups with filling for teas. A friend took me to a real English afternoon tea once at a fancy hotel in London and I have been hooked on teas ever since. The menu was loads of hot tea that kept being refilled, a tiered tray with scones, sandwiches, and some other kinds of sweets I can't quite remember, and clotted cream for the scones. Served with white linen, china and silver, in highbacked chairs with a roaring fire in the fireplace nearby. Since it was awful December weather it was wonderful. I think the sandwiches were some kind of salmon filling, watercress with cream cheese, and maybe something else eggy, it was 20 years ago so I can't remember exactly.
Thank you all for your quick replies! I was thinking Pepperidge Farm thin white bread so I think I will buy that and a rye bread for some color variation.I know I can buy the phyllo cups - but they're expensive to me! At least compared to a pack of phyllo that will make tons.I had an English tea last year at the inn at Biltmore that was amazing and something I hope to do again. All so beautifully and exquisitely prepared and delicious to eat.But these sandwiches will be for our monthly womens' meeting at church and there won't be much fancy anything.But the woman in charge this month is a great cook and I want to impress :)
Also....tea sandwiches are nice made with a dense quick bread...like a honey nut bread with a cheese or creamcheese based filling.Btu for chicken salad, I vote for Pepperidge sandwich white or that cocktail rye.Linda C
Here's another impressive thing I did once, totally unexpectedly. I was in charge of a similar type tea for a herb club, and I made ham and cheese with herbal mustard roll ups, and everyone was raving and raving, and for heavans' sake, it was just ham and cheese! But I used ham, cheese, mustard with some herbs mixed in, and lettuce, and then rolled this up in multi colored wraps, and then sliced them into about 2.5 inch slices and turned them on their side on a tray. The mix of colors was impressive. You could do the same with the chicken salad, and maybe mix it with one other thing. Besides the ham and cheese ones, I have done these sandwiches mexican style with bean dip, lettuce and cheese, and also used vegetable cream cheese and lettuce. Easy peasy and pretty.
If you can get a loaf of soft white bread that isn't cut into slices, cut it long way. Spread the cream cheese filling and roll up jelly roll style and cut into small rounds.When tea sandwiches were popular in the 60's my Dad used to make white bread with food coloring to make pretty pink or mint green colored tea sandwichs.When my kid was small I used to make lots of tea sandwiches using soft white bread and cookie cutters.
Ha ha ...it's no big deal antique silver! I do this kind of stuff all the time.I grilled all my chicken last night- which we also had for dinner- and did a test run of my bread. I have decided to use a piece of Pepperidge Farm thin white cut out into a circle with a biscuit cutter, then pressed into a muffin cup, brushed with oil, then baked. Really more of a crostini than a tea sandwich.However, I only bought one loaf of thin white but I bought a loaf of soft bread that I will make more traditional sandwich triangles.The hard part is that dh and I are going over to mil's this afternoon after church and I want to go too (really!) so I will cart everything over to her house and make the sandwiches over there. She'll enjoy watching me do that though.I have really appreciated all the ideas here and will keep everything in my tea sandwich folder for next time! 59ce067264
