Dilled Cream Cheese & Spinach Tea Sandwiches

Friends and I got together for a Spring Tea Party and I prepared the following recipe to add to our menu. This is a simple tea sandwich that's perfect on it's own as a snack.

Dilled Cream Cheese & Spinach Tea Sandwiches
original Joelen recipe

10 slices whole wheat bread
1 package (8oz) cream cheese, softened
1 tablespoon dill & herb seasoning
2 cups fresh baby spinach leaves

Combine the cream cheese and dill & herb seasoning until full incorporated. Allow it to meld 30 minutes or so in order for the cream cheese to take on the flavor. (You can also prepare this a day in advance.)

Taking 2 slices of bread for a sandwich, spread a tablespoon of the herbed cream cheese on the one side of each slice. Top one slice with a few fresh baby spinach leaves. Place the other slice on top of the spinach leaves, cream cheese side down.

Using a large round cookie or biscuit cutter, cut the middles out of the sandwich.

Repeat for the other slices/sandwiches.
