These finger sandwiches have a delicate flavor, we liked the crunchiness of the nuts! Good luck in the contest!
My first time making finger sammiches. I took them to work and everybody loved them and wanted the recipe. Nice for lunch or snacks.
These make nice, different tea sandwiches which I enjoyed. I liked the crunch of the apples and carrot mixed with the creaminess of the cream cheese. I didn't add any of the milk since my low fat cream cheese was quite creamy already and the milk would have made it a little runny. I think the filling would also be excellent on graham crackers. Good luck in RSC #10!
