Cucumber and Prosciutto Tea Sandwiches


These dainty tea sandwiches are spread with chive butter and layered with prosciutto and cucumber slices. They make a nice match with our Spiked Berry Half-and-Half.


  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature

  • 1 ½ teaspoons finely chopped fresh chives

  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

  • 16 very thin slices white bread

  • ¼ pound Prosciutto or ham

  • Thinly sliced English cucumber

  • Ground pepper


  1. In a small bowl, combine butter, chives, and mustard. Spread bread slices with a layer of seasoned butter. Top 8 bread slices with 2 slices each prosciutto and a layer of sliced cucumber. Season with pepper. Sandwich with remaining bread slices, buttered side down. With a sharp knife, cut off crusts, then cut each sandwich in half on the diagonal. Serve immediately or transfer to a platter and refrigerate, covered with plastic wrap, up to 3 hours.
