Petal Tea Sandwiches

Makes: 38 servings Yield: 38 sandwiches
Prep 20 mins Chill 3 hrs Stand 30 mins
Petal Tea Sandwiches
  • 1  ounce  cream cheese
  • 2  tablespoons  Signet marigold leaves
  • 1  tablespoon  Signet marigold petals
  • 2  tablespoons  snipped fresh chives
  • 1  Signet Marigold Biscuits (see Recipe Center) or thinly sliced firm-textured white, wheat, or rye bread, toasted
  •  Signet marigold flowers (optional)
  •  Cucumber and/or radish slices (optional)
  •  Watercress (optional)

1. Let cream cheese stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. In a bowl combine Signet marigold leaves and petals; use kitchen scissors to coarsely snip. Stir in chives. Spread chive mixture on plastic wrap or waxed paper. Shape cream cheese into a log about 2 inches in diameter. Roll cheese log over chive mixture to evenly coat, pressing slightly so mixture adheres. Wrap log in plastic wrap. Refrigerate 3 to 24 hours (or freeze up to 1 hour).

2. To serve, split biscuits or cut bread in shapes using 2-inch cookie cutters. Slice cheese log in thin rounds; place rounds between biscuit halves or bread shapes. Top with whole Signet marigold flowers, cucumber or radish slices, and watercress. Makes 38 sandwiches

From the Test KitchenTest Kitchen Tip:
  • For fewer sandwiches halve filling; use for 16 to 18 biscuits. Wrap and freeze remaining biscuits up to 3 months.
