My daughter and I came up with this sandwich for our weekly afternoon tea. The sandwiches are spicy, sweet, and have a nice crunch to them. Enjoy!
- 1 carrot, peeled and grated
- 4 tablespoons soft cream cheese
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- 1⁄8 teaspoon five-spice powder
- 4 slices dark rye bread
- Combine the grated carrot, cream cheese spread, brown sugar, and five-spice powder in a bowl. Mix well.
- Chill the mixture for 1/2 hour to allow the flavors to blend.
- Cut the crusts off of the pumpernickel slices and roll the bread to flatten it.
- Spread the mixture onto two of the slices of bread and top with the other two slices.
- Cut these sandwiches diagonally into two triangles each.
This is an awesome sandwich! I really liked the combination of the carrot with the cream cheese and the five spice powder (which I accidentally doubled...). So good! The only thing I changed was to use a spelt raisin and nut bread leaving the crusts on the bread and to leave out the sugar.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this amazing recipe with us, quondamquadrat!
