This is a checkerboard sandwich comprised of one inch square bites, perfect for small hands. This recipe makes 16 one inch bites, but only 9 are pictured. These are really fun to make, by and for adults and kids alike. This version is sweet with nutella and jam. Savory variations are just as easy to create, but I would switch the cream cheese/creme fraiche filling to ricotta and feta for vegetables. —Sagegreen

What You'll Need
  • 2 tablespoons Quaker whipped cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons creme fraiche
  • 4 slices of cocktail size pumpernickel bread
  • 4 slices of cocktail size sour dough bread
  • 2 tablespoons nutella
  • 2 tablespoons lingonberry fruit preserve
  • 1 seckel pear, sliced
  1. Mix the creme fraiche together with the whipped cream cheese. Spread this mix evenly on the bottom of all 4 cocktail bread slices.
  2. On top of the pumpernickel spread the lingonberry jam. On top of the sour dough slices spread the nutella. Add the top slices.
  3. Trim the crusts off all 4 sandwiches. Cut each one into 4 squares. Arrange in a checkerboard pattern with sliced seckel pear as garnish.

way cute, sagegreen!!
i think cooking like this is the whole answer to the childhood obesity question.
they can help prepare their food and then they can eat the healthy stuff they make.
initial edible schoolyard results look promising.

Thanks, luvcookbooks. I intended this version as a replacement to cookies! A savory version with some fresh tomatoes, sliced cukes and chopped greens could also easily be made with ricotta and feta mixed together. I love the edible schoolyard concept. We are actually working on one project for a child development center in Vermont.
