A savory snack to serve with herb tea. These are so pretty -mini grilled cheese sandwiches cut into leaf shapes. You will need a rather small maple leaf shaped cookie cutter (the size should be a little bigger than your largest sage leaf). Adapted from Victoria magazine.

Directions

  1. Using a maple leaf shaped cookie cutter, cut out 16 leaf pieces from the bread.
  2. Cut 8 leaf shaped pieces out of the cheese slices.
  3. Lightly butter one side of each bread leaf (save some of the butter for later).
  4. Place a cheese leaf shape on top of 8 of the buttered bread slices (buttered side up), top with a sage leaf, then the remaining 8 bread slices (buttered side down), making little leaf shaped sandwiches.
  5. Melt remaining butter in a large skillet over medium heat and saute sandwiches until bread is lightly browned on both sides and cheese has melted,about 4-5 minutes.
  6. Add more butter if needed.
  7. Serve immediately.
