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:
Afternoon Tea & High Tea,
Yields: 8 whole sandwiches
Prep time: 10 min
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.
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.
