Herbed Cream Cheese & Cucumber Tea Sandwiches

Friday, July 01, 2011

Cream Cheese wasn't that commonly available in India until a few years ago. Frankly, I didn't even care that much because I really wasn't into different kinds of cuisine & I wasn't really into cooking. The other day, I finally brought home a pack of Britannia cream cheese & it was converted into a herbed spread ... Just perfect for crackers & sandwiches ..

Herbed Cream Cheese
