Cucumber Tea Sandwiches with Tarragon Butter

Top Review by rosemere

This were a very good and mild sandwich. I did not have the chervil but the tarragon added a nice flavor. I actually did not make a tea sandwich but just regular sized sandwiches for the family. We did toast the bread and used a dash of red wine vinegar on each sandwich. We all enjoyed them!
