    Merrie Wold's Note:

    I LOVE tea sandwiches. So lady-like, and perfect for an afternoon event, baby or wedding shower, even a cocktail party. These are traditionally served at the Kentucky Derby, originating from Miss Jennie C. Benedict, a local cateress, who first served them in 1893. They are meant to accompany other dishes, so the 4 to 8 servings will vary depending on what else is on the menu.

      Yes very good! I was surprised these were as tasty as they were, and they went down a treat at high tea. We left the skin on our cucumber as it was thin (telegraph) and left out the food colouring. Thanks!

      Didn't have the food coloring, but otherwise we really enjoyed these little treats!
