Cucumber Finger Sandwiches
- 2 medium-sized cucumbers
- 2/3 cup cider vinegar
- ¾ cup water
- 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
- 1/3 cup mayonnaise
- 1 tablespoon fresh dill, finely chopped
- 2 tablespoons white onion, minced
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- pinch of garlic powder, salt and ground white pepper or to taste
- 12 thin slices white sandwich bread, crusts trimmed
- Sprigs of fresh dill (for garnish)
- smoked paprika, optional (for garnish)
- Wash cucumber thoroughly. Score cucumber skin by running the tines of a fork along the sides, just deep enough to allow cucumber to absorb the flavors of the soaking liquid. Slice into thin rounds and place in a bowl containing the cider vinegar, water and a pinch of salt. Soak cucumber rounds for about 30 minutes. Drain well after 30 minutes and dry cucumber rounds thoroughly on paper towels. Set aside.
- Beat together cream cheese, mayonnaise and dill until well combined. Mix in onions, Worcestershire sauce, garlic powder, salt and white pepper. Blend well to combine flavors.
- Spread about 2 to 3 teaspoons cream cheese mixture on one side of each slice of bread. Cut each bread slice into 4 squares. Top each square with a cucumber round.
- Spoon any remaining cream cheese mixture into a piping bag fitted with an open star tip. Pipe a tiny rosette of the cream cheese mixture over cucumber round. Top each rosette with a tiny sprig of fresh dill. Arrange sandwiches on a serving platter and lightly dust with smoked paprika, if desired. Serve right away.
- If you prefer a closed sandwich, cover cucumber round with another square of bread and decorate with a sprig of dill. Omit the cream cheese rosette. Dust with paprika, if using.
