Tea Sandwiches

There’s something about a afternoon get together with mini sandwiches that makes me happy.  Can you imagine a brunch with friends and there’s heart shaped delicious sandwiches waiting for you on the table?  Doesn’t that scream love and yum at the same time?  In this super easy to put together recipe we’re going to make Ricotta and Tomato Tea Sandwiches that you can whip up in just a few minutes.

Ricotta and Tomato Tea Sandwich Ingredients

You only need a few ingredients for this recipe: bread, ricotta/garlic/basil mixture, diced tomatoes, and more basil.   You’ll also need some adorable cookie cutters where you can be creative.  I used hearts here because I love you guys, but stars and festive shapes like pumpkins for Thanksgiving would be super cute too.  Also, cat cookie cutters are always a good idea.  Anything cat is always a good idea.  Trust me.

Perfect for Afternoon Tea Parties!

You can use any type of bread, I used whole wheat because that’s always something I have in my refrigerator.  Grab a bunch of pieces of bread and start cutting your shapes out.

Now we’re going to make the sandwiches.  Bread first, then ricotta/garlic/basil mixture (smells so good!), diced tomatoes, a nice fresh piece of basil on top, and then one more slice of bread on top.

The star of these sandwiches are both the ricotta mixture which I can eat with a spoon and the diced tomatoes.
