A creamy filling between lightly toasted bread makes these cucumber sandwiches with cream cheese so delicious. They can even be made with lettuce and no bread!
My husband’s great-aunt likes to invite the kids over every summer for a special tea party. My kids really love going for the food and snacks.
One of the things that’s usually made are finger sandwiches. I especially like the ones made with olive and cream cheese. But, this year, I decided to try making one with a creamy cucumber filling.
For the bread in these cucumber sandwiches with cream cheese, I used the Focaccia Style Flax Bread Recipe at About.com. It has a great video to go along with the recipe on how to make it. I was able to cut the bread into 10 squares.
After the bread cooled, I lightly toasted each square in the toaster to dry it out a little. I find the bread holds together best if toasted.
