These sandwiches are so good! I decided to leave out the pine nuts (just a little too pricey) and they still turned out great!
NO ONE liked these. They were expensive and there were tons left on the tray. I will not be trying these again.
These were a big hit at a Christmas tea I attended yesterday. There were none left on the plate by the end of our meal and there were only 6 of us. Everyone asked for the recipe and oohed & ahhed! The only thing I might do diffrently is use a more substantial bread, as the cream cheese was difficult to spread on the white bread, even at room temperature. I think a nice multi-grain or wheat bread would do just fine. Don't leave out the pine nuts: they really make the sandwich stand out and add texture. I will definitely be making these pretty, & tasty morsels again!!
Made these exactly as written, and they were great. Disappeared first, and I only got one. I'm making more as soon as my house is clean! ADDED 1/1/08 I have made these several times and they are always a popular item. What I do now to save time and effort is mix the cream cheese in with everything else and just spread it all together. Saves a step and is just as good.
I made these tea sandwiches for a baby shower. They were a huge hit! Now I'm making it for a quick dinner. I make up a batch on the weekend, and nibble off of it during the week. I use nonfat or lowfat cream cheese,and cucumber slices instead of bread, so I don't bust the diet. Wonderful!
This is really a very tasty little recipe! I used regular mayo, regular onion instead of green onion, dried basil instead of fresh, no pine nuts, and instead of spreading the cream cheese on the bread separately, I mixed it right in with the olive mixture - it turned out great!
Very tasty. I added 1/4 c. prepared alfredo sauce instead of the mayo and skipped the cream cheese. Great on Italian bread that has been toasted!
I made 4 types of tea sandwiches for a function and these were gone in minutes. HUGE hit! I had no pine nuts so I added some crushed, roasted almonds instead and still tasted wonderful.
