Strawberry Tea Sandwiches
Makes 12
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • ⅓ cup mayonnaise
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh basil
  • 24 slices thin white bread, crusts removed
  • 15 sliced fresh strawberries
  • Garnish: fresh baby basil leaves
  1. In the work bowl of a food processor, place cream cheese, mayonnaise, and salt. Process until smooth, stopping to scrape sides of bowl. Stir in basil.
  2. Spread cream cheese mixture onto half of bread slices. Top with sliced strawberries. Cover with remaining bread slices. Cut into triangles. Cover with a damp paper towel, and store in a sealed container to keep bread from drying out. Garnish with basil, if desired.
