Raspberry–Cream Cheese Tea Sandwiches
Serves: 18
 
Ingredients
  • 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • ¼ cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 2 teaspoons heavy whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh mint
  • ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 18 slices white sandwich bread, frozen
  • Garnish: 9 halved fresh raspberries and 18 fresh mint leaves
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Line 2 rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, beat together cream cheese and confectioners’ sugar with a mixer at medium-low speed until creamy, 3 to 4 minutes, stopping to scrape sides of bowl. Beat in heavy cream, chopped mint, and vanilla extract at low speed until combined, approximately 2 minutes. Transfer mixture to a piping bag fitted with a medium round tip (Ateco #804).
  3. Using a 2¼-inch snowflake-shaped cutter, cut 36 shapes from frozen bread slices, discarding scraps. Arrange bread shapes on prepared baking sheets.
  4. Bake until bread shapes are lightly toasted, 3 to 5 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack.
  5. Spread ½ tablespoon cream cheese mixture onto each of 18 bread shapes. Top each with a remaining bread shape.
  6. Garnish each sandwich with a raspberry half and a mint leaf, if desired. Serve immediately.
