Cucumber Finger Sandwiches Recipe

When I began thinking about appetizers to make for Ashley's baby shower, I knew I wanted them to reflect her style -- Southern and classic. Finger foods are a must as well; it was going to be a fairly large shower and strangers and double-dipping just don't mix.

Mom has been making these cucumber sandwiches for as long as I can remember. The recipe is so easy, and I bet you already have two or three of the ingredients in your fridge or pantry.

Cucumber Finger Sandwiches
1 English (seedless) cucumber, some peel removed, sliced
Loaf of white bread (I actually used sourdough this time around)
Block of cream cheese
Dried Dill

Start off by letting your cream cheese come to room temperature to soften.

Remove some of the cucumber peel with a vegetable peeler, then slice into rounds with a knife or mandoline. Set on paper towels to dry and soak up some of the water.

In a small bowl, mix together the cream cheese with mayonnaise to taste. The mayo gives the softened cheese a smoother, spreadable consistency. You can add a pinch of salt, if desired.

Using a cookie cutter or very small-mouthed jar, punch out the bread into rounds. For this shower, I used a heart cookie cutter which was very cute!

Top each bread round with the cream cheese mixture, top with a cucumber slice, and sprinkle on dried dill.

These finger sandwiches are just perfectly girly and a great party food since they are of the pick-up and pop-in variety.

Additionally, if you have extra ingredients, you can make a really delicious cucumber sandwich for the next day using two slices of bread, the cream cheese spread, and several cucumbers.

Aren't they adorable? They were also a hit ... the very last one was snapped up right at the end of the shower. Not a single one was left over.

Bon appetit, ladies!

  1. yum! these look tasty (and perfect for a shower!) xo jillian - cornflake dreams

  2. Delish! I love cucumber sandwiches, adding a bit of arugula or watercress to them is also scrumptious. Another tip -- salting the cucumbers after you slice them. It draws out a lot of the water so they get crunchy, then you just rinse and dry them before serving.
