Herb Cucumber Tea Sandwiches

Balmy spring day........birds sweetly singing........reading our favorite children's books out on the patio.  What a perfect day for cucumber sandwiches!  I always serve these whenever we have a tea party, but I never think to make them at any other time.  So I thought I'd surprise my kiddos with these for lunch today.   They're delightfully crisp and delicious with the herbs.  The English cucumbers taste great in these.

1 8-ounce block of cream cheese, softened (regular or light)
2 tablespoons light sour cream
2 teaspoons fresh chives, minced
1 teaspoon fresh or dried dill
1 English cucumber, sliced thin  
white or light wheat bread

In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and sour cream together until creamy.  Add chives and dill and mix well.   Spread a thin layer of cream cheese mixture on thinly sliced white bread. Place paper thin slices of cucumber on the bread and top with another piece, cutting off the crusts. Cut into triangles or, alternatively, cut into desired shapes with a large cookie cutter.  You can make these ahead of time and place a damp towel over them and refrigerate.
