cucumber mint tea sandwiches

I’m not currently pregnant, but lemme tell you what: had I created this sandwich when I was in waiting, it would have been a favorite! Buttery, salty, and refreshing thank to the crisp, clean crunch of cucumber and bright flavor of mint mixed into the butter, it’s a winner for any occasion, be it pregnancy, a tea party, or just plain hunger. I developed a similar recipe for a baby shower article I wrote that’s in this month’s Every Day with Rachael Ray magazine, but I saved this beauty just for you. Enjoy!

Cucumber and Mint Tea Sandwiches
Makes 10 sandwiches

1 stick (8 tablespoons) salted butter, softened
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh mint
1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
5 slices whole wheat bread
1 English cucumber, peeled and sliced into thin rounds

Mix together the butter, mint and ground black pepper. Spread 1-1/2 tablespoon mint butter on a slice of wheat bread, top with layers of cucumber, cut into star shapes with a cookie cutter, and serve.
