I don't know what is more fun, making these Holiday tea sandwiches or eating them! I just love coming up with new ideas for any party, event or even for just my significant other and I when relaxing at night. Kick back and make a few finger sandwiches that's the perfect pick food anytime of the day.
Great for that last minute idea to bring along that will make everyone say how creative you are. These can be the hit of any party, function, shower, wedding or fund raisers. I have made just about every shape with a cookie cutter there is from any Holiday theme, school football sandwich cutters, Breast cancer awareness month fund raisers emblems to a St. Patrick's Day party. Just find the cookie cutters you need and make this a smash hit at any event or party!
Then baby showers, wedding and other shapes using wedding bells and I used boy and girl gingerbread men for the baby shower. Really get creative. Start collecting cookie cutters. These are always great fun to make and the hit at every function.
All you need is fresh easy to cut through bread, no crusts and make a favorite filling or coordinating colored filling to add to that theme. Easy. You can even just boil up some chicken quickly and make barbecued chicken, chicken salad, hot sauce chicken or just mix with some ranch dressing.
I have even used spinach dip for the filling during St. Patrick's Day, a festive filling all green!
Using several cookie cutters that I have collected along the way. I usually have something for every holiday. Starting off the year with Valentine's Day then on to St. Patrick's Day, 4th of July, Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, etc.
I also love to use my cookie cutters to make animal shapes for the kids when they want grilled cheese or their favorite fillings, like tuna or egg salad. This is perfect for school lunches too.
During the game day season, I also have footballs cookie cutters, round cutters for baseballs and decorate them with the team theme colors and fill with the guys favorite, pulled shredded pork.
Getting creative with colorful foods are so much fun. I always use strawberries or raspberries for Valentine's Day. St. Patrick's Day is easy filling them with arugula and tinted egg salad that's green. It's perfect little finger foods, especially for any kind of gathering you may have. I like to use blueberries for the 4th of July.
Halloween is so much fun doing pumpkins, ghosts and other cookie cutter shapes. We like to fill them with a sweeter filling like nutella, peanut butter and jelly and decorate with candy corns for the pumpkin eyes. The kids just love them!
Of course you can just stick to some of the filling recipes for some healthier suggestions as well. You can add anything you want to the cream cheese. I usually use 1 8 ounce package cut into 4 pieces. Then I mix it with either fruits or chopped vegetables. Spread on the bread. You can also add chopped nuts, figs, dates or other dried fruits.
Cream cheese mixed with miniature chocolate chips with nutella spread is a fun favorite for the kids.
