The Magician’s Nephew Tea Party/Book Club: Cucumber Aioli Canapés

So every Wednesday, starting in October, I have been a part of a Tea Party/Bible Study/Book Club on The Magician’s Nephew by C.S. Lewis. This is different from my book club and the Book Club Picks I have been reviewing (and desperately need to catch up on). I also need to catch up on these recipes. Week three we had Organic India Tulsi Masala Chai Tea, Parmesan and Chive Scones, Cucumber Aioli Canapés, Ham & Apple Sandwiches, Cranberry and Brie Bites, and Mini Pumpkin Creme Brulee.

I couldn’t share the recipes in October as I was in the middle of Horrorfest IX, so I am catching up and of course next is sandwiches.

This comes from Teatime Celebrations magazine. The recipe did call for alfalfa sprouts but I forgot them, but I did have leftover parsley and threw that on top.

Ingredients Lemon-Pepper Aioli:

  • 1/4 Cup of Mayonnaise
  • 1/2 Teaspoon of Fresh Lemon Zest
  • 1/8 Teaspoon of Ground Black Pepper

Directions:

  1. In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, lemon zest, and pepper-stirring well.
  2. Use immediately, or cover and refrigerate for up to a day.

Ingredients Sandwiches:

  • 3 Large Slices of Firm White Sandwich Bread, Frozen
  • 1 English Cucumber
  • Lemon-Pepper Aioli
  • Parsley

Directions:

  1. Using a 2-inch cutter, cut 12 shapes out of the 3 slices of frozen bread. Discard scraps.
  2. Place bread in resealable bag and let thaw.
  3. Spread the aioli onto each bread square.
  4. Using a mandolin or sharp paring knife, cut 60 paper-thin slices from the cucumber.
  5. Place 5 cucumber slices on each bread square, overlapping each circle.
  6. Serve immediately.

These were good but not as good as the Cucumber-Four Peppercorn Goat Cheese Canapés.  But that’s okay, I like trying out recipes and trying to find the perfect cucumber sandwich.
