High Tea!

For The Love Of High Tea!

High tea: A meal eaten in the late afternoon or early evening, typically consisting of a cooked dish, bread and butter, and tea.

High tea usually consists of a selection of scones, cream & jam, lovely cakes, finger sandwiches and savoury treats served with a pot of tea and/or a glass of champagne, if you please.

Cucumber Sandwiches


1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup mayonnaise 
1 medium cucumber, peeled, seeded, and finely chopped/grated
1/4 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon chopped fresh dill
20 sandwich bread slices
20 thin wheat bread slices 


Process cream cheese and mayonnaise in a blender or food processor until smooth, stopping once to scrape down sides.
Combine cream cheese mixture, cucumber, garlic salt, and dillweed.
Spread cucumber mixture evenly onto white bread slices, and top with wheat bread. Using a 2- to 3-inch round cutter, cut sandwiches, discarding edges. Or cut crusts from bread, discarding crusts, and cut sandwiches into quarters.
