Tea Sandwiches That Will Rival Any Grandmother's Recipe

Sure, we go nuts for vintage eBay scores and the latest runway trends, but there's nothing that stops R29ers dead in their tracks faster than some good ol' food porn. So, when the ladies of HonestlyWTF teamed up with Karen Chan of GlobetrotterDiaries and Todd Wagner of Baytenders to launch an equally delicious blog, HonestlyYUM, we just had to drop everything. Each week, we'll spotlight their creative concoctions. Go ahead, try to look away — we dare you.
Tea sandwiches have always seemed inexplicably sophisticated to me. All you have to do is just pair a couple ingredients with ordinary white bread and you have delicate finger sandwiches. Instead of using two slices of bread, I decided to leave these sandwiches open-faced, making for an even more beautiful spread. The combination of ingredients are endless, but these are just some of my favorites. Simply use good quality butter and the rest is simple.
