Cucumber Tea Sandwich

1/4 cup loosely packed fresh mint leaves or fresh basil leaves
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened
2 tablespoons cream cheese, softened
6 slices of white bread (other bread may be substituted)
3-inch length of cucumber

Remove stems, rinse, and dry quickly

Chop leaves into small pieces

Place the cream cheese, butter, and leaves into a bowl and mix well.

Spread the mixture on the bread.

Slice the cucumbers thinly. For more of a crunch slice thicker. Place on one side of bread slices. Assemble sandwich.

Slice the crusts off assembled sandwiches. Slice sandwich into rectangles or triangles.

I think its best with basil and I added a touch of fresh garlic and it was soooo good.
