I made these for a High Tea after a Library dedication at my church. I made them in a very orderly way. They were cut the width of the radishes and very orderly. It was nice to have a plate of tea sandwiches open face with color.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a small bowl, blend the softened butter with the lemon zest and lemon juice and season with salt.
  2. Spread the bread slices with the lemon butter. Using a 1 1/2 inch round biscuit cutter, cut 16 rounds from 4 slices. Cut the remaining slices into 2 1/2-by-1 inch rectangles. Top with the parsley leaves and radish slices. Serve at once, or cover the sandwiches with plastic wrap and let stand at room temperature for up to 2 hours.
