I am a teacher and occasionally teach Oscar Wilde's play "The Importance of Being Earnest," which has a scene revolving importantly around cucumber sandwiches. (One character's insatiable eating of them is a plot point in the play.) Last time teaching, I decided actually to make some. But I frankly found them just so-so. I wonder how much better might they be?
Here's what I did last time: I purchased Pepperidge Farms thin-sliced white sandwich bread; I buttered the slices (with Land o' Lakes unsalted, maybe?); I put thin, peeled and lightly salted cucumber slices inside two bread slices; and I cut the bread into triangles for serving. Is that the real deal?
