  1. 1 (5.2-ounce) package garlic-and-herbs cheese, softened
  2. 1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  3. 1/4 cup finely chopped toasted walnuts
  4. 1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  5. 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  6. 48 slices white bread
  7. Paprika
  8. 2 carrots, peeled
  9. Garnish: green onions
  1. In a small bowl, combine cheese, cream cheese, walnuts, cayenne pepper, and pepper. Beat at medium speed with a mixer until creamy.
  2. Using a 2 1/2-inch cutter, cut 48 rounds from bread. With a rolling pin, roll each bread round to a 1/8-inch thickness.
  3. Spread approximately 1 teaspoon cream cheese mixture onto each bread round. Sprinkle center with paprika, and fold bottom of prepared bread round over, pinching end to seal.
  4. Cut small pieces of carrot, and place in center of each sandwich for flower stamen. Garnish with green onion tops to form stems, if desired.
  1. Makes 4 dozen.
