We love these little cucumber sandwiches…they are the yummest! Every time I have a shower or summer party these are on the menu. I serve these little sandwiches and they disappear so quickly. I will replenish the platter and dang it they are gone again before I get the container put away…they are so good and so easy to make. Oh come on they are cucumber sandwiches but oh my they are so dee-lish.
8 oz room temp cream cheese
1/4 cup mayo or creme fraiche
1 clove minced garlic
1 tablespoon butter
juice of half a lemon
2 tablespoon fresh grated cucumber
3 tablespoons of fresh chopped chives
salt and pepper
dash of hot sauce
1 fancy fresh white bread
1 large cucumber sliced paper thin for topping sandwiches
1 tablespoon of chives chopped tiny for tops of sandwiches
Mix cream cheese, mayo/creme fraiche, butter, garlic, lemon, grated cucumber, chives salt, pepper and hot sauce until creamy and well mixed. I put this mixture in a pastry bag to pipe on the little bread rounds. I take nice fresh plain ole white bread and cut it in little fancy rounds. I used a scalloped 2 inch round for this photo. Pipe the cheese mixture on the little bread rounds, then top with a cucumber. Then top with a little more of the cheese mixture and more fresh chives. These can be made ahead ~ you will need to put a damp paper towel on top of the sandwiches to keep them soft and fresh. I wet a paper towel and squeeze all the water out and place on top. This is an ole southern trick to keep little finger sandwiches nice and fresh until your shindig.
