Reviews for Finger Sandwiches
"These were really a simple and light food to make. I made them for my kids' lunch this week (since it's almost halloween) and they loved it! They really liked the cream cheese mixture on the bread. I did add a touch of tomato sauce on the ends of the fingers - for a spookier look ;) GREAT for kids or a party appetizer!"
