There’s A Simple Way To Cut Satisfying Circle Bread For Tea Sandwiches
If you’ve ever attended a get-together such as a bridal or baby shower, perhaps you’ve enjoyed miniature sandwiches, also known as finger sandwiches or tea sandwiches.
Stuffed with fillings like egg salad, chicken salad, or cucumber, tea sandwiches originate from British afternoon tea in the Victorian era, but they're not fancy or fussy to make.
The bread's crust is usually removed and the sandwiches are cut into neat triangles or circles. You can use a biscuit or cookie cutter to cut and shape the bread all at once.
Cookie cutters let you cut out the desirable un-crusted part of the bread into the shape of your choice. However, if you don't have one, you can also use a drinking glass.
French chef, author, and culinary educator Jacques Pépin presses the rim of a glass down onto the bread to cut it into neat circles in perhaps the easiest way ever.
