Olive Tea Sandwiches

Olive Tea Sandwiches | Pinky's Pantry
Vickie, one of my officemates, brought in some little olive sandwiches and I got to try one. Delicious! I thought they would be perfect to serve at my Mother’s Day Tea Party. She told me what all she put in hers (cream cheese, garlic powder, a little ranch dressing….) but I can’t remember what all the ingredients were that she used and I didn’t write anything down so I decided to try and make my own version when I got home. My sandwiches are simpler with less ingredients in the filling, but I think they came out just as good.

OLIVE TEA SANDWICHES

  • 1 pkg. (8 ozs.) cream cheese, softened
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • ½ cup chopped pimiento-stuffed Spanish olives
  • ½ cup chopped pecans
  • 1 tbsp. olive juice
  • 1 loaf soft white or wheat bread
  1. Combine cream cheese, mayonnaise, olives, pecans, and olive juice.
  2. Cut crusts off bread.
  3. Make sandwiches with olive filling.
  4. Cut sandwiches into little shapes.

  1. My mother used to make me cream cheese and olive sandwiches when I was sick. They made me feel special and pampered. Yours are a little fancier, but still conjure up childhood memories. Thanks!

    • Isn’t that funny? And here I’d never heard of olive sandwiches before my co-worker brought them in to the office. I sure thought they were yummy, though.
