I'm rating this recipe on the little princess in our life, my 6 year old grandaugher who says this is a 15. We used this recipe one day when I was babysitting and she asked if we could have a real tea party. We did sub texas toast bread since the princess and her friend of 7 and my 2 year old prince of a grandson are not partial to rye bread etc. at this age. We lightly toasted the bread and cut off the crust, then cut the bread into triangles. We proceeded to mix the rest of the ingredients as to recipe and made finger sandwiches. Since I told the princess that you have to have tea at a tea party we used the instant russian tea recipe on this site, which we made and put into a kool aid pitcher then chilled with ice and served with our sandwiches. They ate all the sandwiches and even liked the tea. I must say this is one of the most rewarding times that I have spent with my grandchildren and we will now have a tea party every month and have decided that we will go around the world every month and find a sandwich and tea to serve. So needless to say I will be a busy Nana on allrecipes looking for worldwide tea parties. This is a great and rewarding way to spend time with your children or grandchildren. Enjoy!

I followed the recipe as written. People did like these, however, I find its one of those appetizers people would eat 1 and that's it. Not something you can really eat a lot of. I think the italian dressing called for was a little overpowering so I will cut down on that if i make them again.

Simple and delicious, what could be better! I put the cheese mixture in a pastry bag with a large star tip, put just a dab on the bread to "glue" on the cucumber and then piped the mixture on top. Garnish w/ chopped fresh dill or chives.YUM

Two hours before my friends baby shower, the hostess calls and asks if I can bring something, as someone else had to back out. These were fast, and everyone loved them! I couldn't find the cocktail rounds (and I was in a hurry!), so I used dill rye, quartered. The dill accent was just wonderful! I doubled the recipe, but could have trippled it, these went over so well. Looking forward to serving these at my next get together!

Doubled the recipe. Used one fat free and one regular cream cheese. Put in a piping bag and in the fridge for 1&1/2 hour - enough to let flavors mix. (still soft enough to pipe) Used mandoline w/english cucumbers - 2 slices per serving. Dill on top. A HIT and the kids use leftovers for after an school snack!

I've made these many times for all occasions and we never get tired of them. Very addicting! The only difference in this recipe and the one I use is adding a small pinch of dried dill weed (not seed)to the top of the cucumber slice. They are also very easy to make and very inexpensive.

This recipe was a big hit at a potluck event I attended. I made the cream cheese mixture the night before to allow time for the flavors to blend.

This is a great recipe. I have found that these are even better when made the day before. Gives the flavors time to blend.
