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.

What You'll Need
  • 4 ounces Whipped cream cheese
  • Juice from ½ lemon
  • 2 tablespoons Fresh dill (you can sub dried dill, but use 1 tsp instead)
  • Black pepper and salt to taste
  • Per Sandwich - Diced cucumbers (peel them if you want to be fancy, but it’s not a problem if you leave them on)
  • Per Sandwich - • 2 Slices of S. Rosen’s Farmers Market White or 12 Grain Bread
  1. Combine the whipped cream cheese, lemon juice, and fresh dill together. Season with salt and pepper and then set aside. Can be made the day before.
  2. Assemble the sandwich: spread a layer of the dill cream cheese mixture on both slices. Cover the bottom slice with cucumbers and then top with the other slice. Slice off crusts and cut remaining sandwich into 3 pieces.
