It’s time for another recipe.Â I love posting recipes because I only postÂ recipes that are really tried and true andÂ delicious!Â Â
This is my mother’s recipe for cucumber/cream cheeseÂ sandwiches.Â She cuts these into circlesÂ or other shapes for special occasions – like a wedding reception, a luncheon, a bridal or baby shower.Â Everytime I’ve made them, people have asked for the recipe.Â Â They’re light-tasting and really REALLY good.
CUCUMBER & CREAM CHEESE SANDWICHES
2 (3 oz.) pkgs. cream cheese
2 Tablespoons grated onion
2 Tablespoons sour cream
2 medium cucumbers (peeled, grated and drained)
salt and white pepper to taste
green food coloring (optional – just a drop or two to make the mixture a very pale green)
Combine all ingredients (except the bread slices) to make the filling.Â Stir until smooth.Â Cut thin slices of bread into the desired shapes and Spread with the filling and top with another slice of bread.Â I usually spread the mixture on the bread firstÂ and make a sandwich – and then use a cookie cutter or knife to cut it into shapes.Â Â Most of the time IÂ cut off the crusts and then slice diagonally to make two triangles.Â These sandwichesÂ look very pretty, too.
The mix yields about two cups of filling.Â How many sandwiches that makes depends on how much filling you put in each sandwich.
