Cucumber Goat-Teas

Hands down the best cucumber sandwich I’ve ever had.  No need to throw a ladies tea to have an excuse to make these as they would also be a great hors d’oeuvre for a summer evening.  This platter did not make it to the cocktail hour however.  It was empty within minutes of these photos. Recipe by Mary Corpening Barber and Sara Corpening Whiteford, in their book, Cocktail Food.

Cucumber Goat-Teas

Serves 12


  • 3/4 cups seasoned rice vinegar
  • 2 cups very thinly sliced red onion
  • 2/3 cups goat cheese (at room temperature)
  • 1/3 cup cream cheese (at room temperature)
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper
  • 12 slices white bread (crusts removed, cut into 3-inch squares (I used Pepperidge Farms Original White))
  • 1 English cucumber (cut into 1/16 inch slices, cut in half)


1. Pour the vinegar over the onions and let marinate in a small bowl until the onions are soft and malleable, at least 30 minutes. Strain and refrigerate until chilled.
2. Mix the goat cheese and cream cheese together in a small bowl. Season with white pepper.
3. Spread about 1 tablespoon of the cheese mixture on each piece of bread. Cut each piece into 4 triangles. Arrange 2-3 slices of the cucumber on each triangle. Top with 1 or two slices of red onion.

    I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your blog. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems? A few of my blog audience have complained about my site not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Firefox. Do you have any ideas to help fix this issue?

      Yes! And I do so love the idea of High Tea in the afternoon. Unfortunately, that usually means a to-go cup of green tea and a protein bar these days. I printed out your cookie in a cup recipe for my daughter to try this weekend. Looks like fun!
