This sandwich is always a hit at tea parties! Everyone loves the flavor of the cream cheese paired with the sweetness of pineapple and salty crunch of the pecans. Try serving this on Emerson Creek Pottery’s Small Frilly Tray. Your guests will love seeing the beautiful hand painted artwork on the tray appear as the delicious sandwiches disappear!
1 can crushed pineapple, drained
3/4 cup sugar
8 oz. block of cream cheese
1 cup chopped pecans
1 baguette loaf or your favorite type of bread, sliced thin
Toast pecans in a dry pan or skillet until slightly browned and fragrant. In a food processor, mix crushed pineapple and cream cheese. Add toasted nuts to mixture with spoon. Spread on thin slices of favorite bread. If serving on a white soft bread, trim the crusts and cut the bread into squares. If serving on a baguette or other loaf bread, leave them sliced then for a more rustic aesthetic.
