This sandwich tastes like you are eating carrot cake. The crunchy carrots and nuts add a wonderful texture to the sweet raisin bread.

Carrot-Raisin Tea Sandwich Recipe

Recipe Type: Sandwich, Afternoon Tea & High Tea, Carrots
Yields: 8 whole sandwiches
Prep time: 10 min


Ingredients:

1 cup grated carrots
8 ounces (1/2 can) prepared cream cheese frosting
8 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts or pecans
4 slices cinnamon raisin bread*

*Choose the best-quality bread as possible. Never serve end slices. Freezing the bread before cutting and then spreading makes for easier handling.


Preparation:

In a medium bowl, combine grated carrots, cream cheese frosting, cream cheese, and chopped walnuts or pecans.

Spread one side of two slices of bread with the carrot/frosting mixture (about 1/4-inch thick). Top with the remaining two bread slices.

Carefully cut the crusts from each sandwich with a long, sharp knife. Cut the sandwiches in half diagonally and then cut in half again. If desired, decorative shapes can be made with cookie cutters.

Yields 2 whole sandwiches or 4 halves or 8 fourths.

 


Making Sandwiches Ahead of Time:

If you need to make tea sandwiches in advance and need to keep them from drying out, cover them loosely with a sheet of wax paper and then place a damp kitchen towel over the wax paper (never place a damp towel directly on top of the bread because the sandwiches will become soggy). Refrigerate.

When ready to serve, remove from refrigerator. Uncover sandwiches just before serving.
