Gluten Free Cucumber Watercress Cream Cheese Tea Sandwiches

Gluten Free Cucumber Watercress Cream Cheese Tea Sandwiches

Tea sandwiches, like the ones my mom used to make only for special occasions, should be as petite and thin as possible.  Serving tea sandwiches as a one-bite hors-d’oeuvre is one of my favorite ways to enjoy them.  I gave my mom’s recipe a makeover with Udi’s gluten-free “Delicious Soft White” bread and almond cream cheese spread by Kite Hill.   Try my yummy gluten free cucumber watercress cream cheese tea sandwiches for your next party or gathering.  Hope you enjoy!
