Mini Cream Cheese and Jam Sandwiches

We love these cute little sandwiches. The recipe below calls for cream cheese and jam, but you can just as easily use other fillings. Try peanut butter or almond butter and jam, Nutella or cheese and ham.

Use cookie cutters to make mini sandwiches

We used a daisy shaped cookie cutter to make ours, but any cookie cutter will work. It’s also nice to alternate the kind of bread you use when making a big batch.
