Shamrock Cucumber Tea Sandwiches

Traditional cream cheese and cucumber tea sandwiches get an open-faced Saint Patrick’s Day twist for a feast day tea party. These can also be made as a traditional closed sandwich. Other Irish Tea Party favorites include round Irish scones, shortbread or sugar cookies, and other little tea sandwiches like salmon, chicken salad, egg salad, or watercress.
Prep Time 15 minutes
Servings 4


  • 8 ounces cream cheese
  • 8 slices white bread
  • 2 mini cucumbers cut into ⅛ inch slices
  • Dill weed fresh (chopped) or dried
  • Salt and pepper


  • Spread 2 tablespoons of cream cheese on each piece of bread. Use a 2 ½ inch circle cutter (or a drinking glass) to cut two rounds out of each bread slice. Sprinkle each with a bit of salt and pepper and dill. Arrange three mini cucumber slices on each round, to look like a shamrock. Cut two cucumber slices into quarters and trim off the center, leaving about ⅛ of an inch of the skin and flesh, to make a shamrock stem.
