    French Tart's Note:

    These delightful and rather unusual tea sandwiches combine the delicate French herb tarragon, with ripe tomatoes, garlic and shallots – a change from the usual basil and tomatoes. The tomatoes are gently poached with all the seasonings until a thick puree or butter is obtained; the tomato butter is then cooled and you are left with a wondrous sandwich filling, bursting with flavour and colour! The butter can be used for all manner of things, including a topping for a pizza or for toasted sandwiches. Use fresh bread, white or wholemeal, and garnish with fresh tarragon leaves. Any excess butter can be stored in an airtight container for up to a week in the fridge. NB: Prep time includes chilling time for the butter.

      Made a double batch of these for a Holiday Tea Party this weekend and everyone loved them! I'm thinking I can use this as a pasta sauce, less the butter. Love the flavors of the shallots and tarragon, extremely tasty! Thanks for sharing!

      Tartlette these are incredible little gems. I enjoyed them so much. They are certainly worth the extra effort. These little sandwiches are so pretty and unique. I made a small batch just for myself, using challah egg bread, what a decadent treat, they turned out to be. So tasty, savory, rich, creamy and smooth. I can't wait to share these with my friends this summer. Thanks for sharing my friend. Made for Summer Herbs - Month Tarragon/09 :)
