I've been jonesing for a cucumber sandwich for a while now and when the Top Chef Just Desserts episode last week was about tea parties, I knew it was fate.
So I made flax bread, this time using the focaccia-style recipe from about.com which you can find here. This is the second time I made this recipe. The first time didn't really turn out well because I added other herbs and parmesan cheese to the recipe. It made the bread taste fishy. I know, that's weird, right?
But this time, I stuck to the recipe. It turned out great.
For the cucumber sandwich, I simply sliced cucumbers thinly and let it dry on paper towels. Then I spread butter on one slice of bread, spread and then I mixed softened cream cheese with a bit of cour cream and onion powder. I spread that mixture over both slices of bread. Then I layered the cucumber slices. I made probably three layers.
It was just as I imagined it to be. Very refreshing, very light and fresh. I felt like a lady.
