Use a bread machine to turn a loaf of bread into delectable tea time morsels.
Add the first 10 ingredients to the bread machine pan according to the manufacturer's directions for a 2-pound loaf. Select the basic white bread cycle. If available, try a light-crust color setting.
To make tea breads, use a small cookie cutter or canape cutter to cut shapes from a slice of bread. Spread bread shapes with softened cream cheese and top with your choice of preserves, nuts, or fresh fruit. Makes 27 servings.
