I have had a couple of tea parties with my granddaughters. I let them choose the menu and this was one of the tea sandwiches Valerie chose. When I go to stay with them I make up several different sandwich fillings for them to make their own sandwiches for their lunchboxes and again this one is always requested.

How to Make Carrot-Ginger Tea Sandwiches

Step-by-Step

  • 1* Choose the best-quality bread as possible. Never serve end slices. Freezing the bread before cutting and then spreading makes for easier handling.
  • 2In a medium bowl, combine carrots, cream cheese, mayonnaise, and ginger; add salt and pepper.

    Spread one side of each piece of bread lightly with butter. Top the buttered side of 2 slices of bread with carrot/ginger mixture (about 1/4-inch thick). Top with alfalfa sprouts and top with the remaining bread slices, buttered side down.

    Carefully cut the crusts from each sandwich with a long, sharp knife. Cut the sandwiches in half diagonally and then cut in half again. If desired, decorative shapes can be made with cookie cutters.
  • 3MAKING SANDWICHES AHEAD OF TIME:
    If you need to make tea sandwiches in advance and need to keep them from drying out, cover them loosely with a sheet of wax paper and then place a damp kitchen towel over the wax paper (never place a damp towel directly on top of the bread because the sandwiches will become soggy). Refrigerate.
