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.

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.

Mini Cream Cheese and Jam Sandwiches
Make these on the fly when your children’s friends come over or make them the centerpiece for their next birthday. Chose any large cookie cutter shape. You can make these ahead of time, just over each sandwich with a slightly damp paper towel. Store ahead of time up to 2 hours.
You Will Need
20 slices sandwich bread
3/4 cup cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup jam, any flavor
Spread cream cheese onto one side of 10 slices of bread. Spread jam over cream cheese. Cover jam with remaining 10 slices bread. Using a 2 1/2-to-3-inch cookie cutter, cut out the sandwiches, avoiding the crusts.
