Cucumber Tea Sandwiches

Cucumber Tea Sandwiches

Nothing feels quite so perfectly British as a tea party. No tea party is complete without delicate tea sandwiches! I like to serve mine in open-faced triangle shapes, but you can also make them into closed sandwiches. Both options are outlined in the recipe.
