Blue Ribbon Recipe

We really enjoyed these scrumptious tea sandwiches. They're slightly salty and creamy from the Bleu cheese spread. The mildly sweet and crisp slices of pear are a tasty contrast to the creamy filling. They are perfect sandwiches for parties or afternoon tea. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
