Author Notes

On Mother’s Day the focus should be on crafting a fun and low stress day, but sometimes that’s easier said than done! To help, we came up with a mostly make ahead English inspired high tea. The tea filling can be made before and because there is no cooking the day of, it’s a perfect way for the kids to help out. Speaking of kids, if you’re dealing with picky eaters, make some PB&Js to add to the serving platter so everyone will be happy!
These sandwich pair perfectly with mom’s favorite tea and you can even add some sparkling wine or gin and tonics to continue the English high tea vibes!
Side note: for this we included cutting off the crusts to keep things traditional, but if you’re looking to make life easier, feel free to leave them on.
While there aren’t many ingredients in this sandwich, it’s definitely greater than the sum of its parts! —SP

What You'll Need
  • 2/3 cup whole milk ricotta cheese
  • 2/3 cup shelled pistachios
  • 1 tablespoon honey (add more to taste)
  • 3 ounces Per Sandwich - Ricotta honey mixture
  • Per Sandwich - 2 slices • 2 Slices of S. Rosen’s Farmers Market Soft 12 Grain Bread
  • Per Sandwich - blueberries
  1. Crush the shelled pistachios with a mortar and pestle (or use a food processer).
  2. . Mix the ricotta cheese and honey together, add the pistachios, and mix until smooth. This can be done the day before.
  3. Assemble the sandwich: spread a layer of the ricotta/honey mixture on both slices. Cover the bottom slice with blueberries and then top with the other slice. Slice off crusts and cut remaining sandwich into 3 pieces.
