My mother taught me how to make cucumber sandwiches as she is a trained tea consultant.  If you enjoy all things tea you should visit her blog Friendship Tea.  I love to use fresh cucumbers from my garden.  The reason why you use the butter is to keep your bread from getting soggy!

How to Make Cucumber Sandwiches
Recipe type: Sandwich
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 1
  • Bread - any type you desire
  • Butter - real butter, unsalted
  • Cucumbers - English Cucumbers are nice
  • Cream Cheese - We prefer Philadelphia Brand
  1. Wash your cucumber and peel (if desired) slice into very thin slices. Next dry the slices between two paper towels.
  2. Butter both slices of bread with a thin layer of butter. Do not melt the butter but allow it soften for ease of spreading.
  3. Next spread a thin layer of cream cheese on both slices of bread (on top of the butter) Allow to come to room temperature to allow it to soften for ease of spreading.
  4. Finally top with dry cucumbers.
  5. Cut into shapes and remove crust if desired. You can do squares, rectangles, triangles or use a cookie cutter.
  6. Helpful Tip: The reason why you use butter is to keep your bread from getting soggy!
