English Cucumber Canapés
  • 2 packages of cream cheese
  • ½ cup creme fraiche
  • 1 small shallot finely diced
  • 1½ lemons squeezed
  • 3 loaves of Judy’s love sticks (wheat baguettes with sunflower seeds). I use TJ’s brand. Any baguette will do.
  • 3 large English cucumbers
  1. Finely chop shallot. Blend cream cheese and creme fraiche. Add lemon juice, shallots and salt and pepper to taste. I used a food processor to get smooth texture.
  2. Slice baguette thinly and lightly toast in oven (400 degrees for about 4-5 min).
  3. Use mandolin to thinly slice cucumbers. Put sliced cucumbers between paper towels to absorb most of the water.
  4. To assemble: once bread has cooled, spread some cream cheese mixture and top with two cucumbers. Serve within 4 hours.
