Sweet Ham Tea Sandwiches

Rate This Recipe: 
  • 1 cup whipped cream cheese
  • 1 Tbs. apricot preserves
  • 12 oz. diced ham
  • 1/4 cup chopped dried apricots
  • 1/4 cup diced celery
  • Chopped fresh mint to taste
  • Cracked pepper to taste
  • Assorted sliced bread (whole wheat, pumpernickel, white, cinnamon raisin)

In a bowl, blend the preserves with the cream cheese. Add the remaining filling ingredients and mix well. Prepare the sandwiches using different types of bread. Using a sharp chef’s knife, slice off the crusts, and cut each sandwich into four pieces (squares or triangles). Serve. Chef’s Note: If you chill the sandwiches for an hour, they will look “cleaner” when you cut them. If you would like to make the sandwiches ahead of time, store them in a plastic storage box, placed close together, and layered with damp paper towels.
