    Mimi in Maine's Note:

    This is traditional English fare for tea. They are very dainty and quaint to eat if you are having a tea party. It makes you feel like a queen. Dry parsley or dry dill may be sprinkled on in place of the fresh parsley.

      You get 5 stars for saving me in an awkward situation!!! I know cucumber sandwiches are not top gourmet food, but thank you, Mimi!! I picked your recipe from among the other (quite similar) recipes because I had the ingredients and liked the cream cheese for making it slightly more filling. Brief tale: we had a few household emergencies all at once: a burst hot water tank, and then another plumbing disaster in the kitchen. Between the comings and goings and water dramas I completely forgot that two professional women were coming to see my husband, and they'd be just off a plane from Johannesburg: they'd have to be fed something light -- 11.30am! Panic stations! I didn't have whipped cream cheese, just ordinary, so beat it within an inch of its life to lighten and soften it. I used white pepper and Maldon salt. I used my potato peeler to peel long strips off the (long English) cucumber, because it's easier to slice thinly and cover the bread. Let me mention that this was about all I had available for snacks, plus vacuum-packed cold meats, so I was able to make up a platter, with cheese cubes and gherkins. Whew!! I made tea, and they were fine. They happen to be pencil slim, so probably would not have welcomed the baked goods I had in mind before the plumbing catastrophes!!
