Today’s post is like a Throwback Thursday kind of post. These Cucumber Mint Sandwiches were first mentioned in my Turkey Pot Pie post more than four years ago. Recently, I made some pot pies with the leftover turkey from Thanksgiving and updated the pictures. Rereading that post made me want to make these sandwiches again.
Fortunately, cream cheese is now on sale with those BOGO (buy one get one) free deals and so I bought a couple of boxes. I used half a box for my Raspberry Swirl Cream Cheese Pound Cake and the other half for these sandwiches. If you have not seen the pound cake yet, do check it out. I was really happy at the way it turned out and I know you will too.
These Cucumber Mint Sandwiches are really easy to put together and they are great for afternoon tea. I like to use Pepperidge Farm’s very thin white bread that give the look of the perfect tea sandwich but any kind of sliced bread will work.
A little freshly ground pepper may be added to the cream cheese mixture for a slightly spicy and peppery taste. Of course, a cup of tea is a must!
Enjoy…..and have a wonderful day! 😎
