Princess Tea Sandwiches aka Valentine's Toast: The recipe calls for rye bread & garlic cream cheese, but frankly my kids & I like it as toast with cream cheese & strawberry preserves or skip the cream cheese, then top with 2 slice of pear or apple to form a heart shape.
Carrot tea sandwiches: In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, carrots, pine nuts, parsley, salt, and garlic powder. Using a hand mixer on medium-low speed, beat until carrots are in small pieces and mixture is uniformly combined. Spread a heaping teaspoon of cream-cheese mixture on each piece of toast. Garnish with fresh parsley, if desired.
