Tea Sandwiches | Mother's Day Recipes

Tea Sandwiches

Any sandwich can be a tea sandwich, as long as it's sliced into neat, nearly-bite-size pieces. Here are some of our favorites - adapted from "Pink Princess Tea Parties" by Barbara Beery - to get you started. For extra fanciness on a special occasion like a Mother's Day Tea Party, use a cookie cutter to punch out shapes from your sandwich bread.
