Gougères Tea Sandwiches With Mint, Date Paste, and Goat Cheese Recipe

Gougères Tea Sandwiches With Mint, Date Paste, and Goat Cheese Recipe

One of the best parts about tea sandwiches?

The small bite-sized serving makes it the perfect chance to put really interesting flavors together and somehow (the cuteness? the small size?) means people give it a go when they otherwise might not.

These sandwiches — made with sweet date paste, fresh mint, and tangy goat cheese on a cheese puff “bun” — are intriguing.

The recipe’s name, Gougères Tea Sandwiches With Mint, Date Paste, and Goat Cheese, is long but super cute and worth the effort! And, since all the parts — the date paste, gougeres, and cheese — can be prepared ahead of time, you simply must assemble them before your party.

Now, go stock up on all your cooking essentials, head into the kitchen, make this, and share it with us by tagging @saltandwind and #swsociety on social!
