Cookie Cutter Art

Here's a fun way to serve a holiday sandwich.
Instead of serving a plain sandwich as the one on the right, take a miniature cookie cutter and cut out a portion of the top slice of bread. A festive filling on the bottom slice will highlight the design of the cookie cutter when you complete your sandwich with the top slice. When using cookie cutters with sandwiches, I have found that the very thin sliced bread (Pepperidge Farm, for example) helps to accentuate the design of the cutter. Here I've used a petite Christmas tree cookie cutter, but we have the cutest miniature teapot cookie cutters in The Rosemary House that would be perfect at any time of the year.

Love the idea. I have done this with a star cutter or a miniature gingerbread man cutter. So fun!
