My mother, when she was living, loved to go to church luncheons and "hen parties" where they served up some fancy and unusual things, such as finger sandwiches.
In her recipe archives I found these two recipes. What I am interested in knowing is are any of you familiar with either of these two recipes? Are they good tasting? (I've never tried them and am tempted to do so!) Do you have any suggestions for either of them? Your input is most welcome! Thank you!

Spread #1:
I (8 oz) pkg Cream Cheese, softened
1/2 cup finely chopped Walnuts or Pecans
2 to 3 Tbs Milk or Cream
4 to 5 drops Tabasco Sauce
Pimiento-stuffed Olives (doesn't say what to do with them! I assume you spear with a cocktail pick as a garnish?
Thinly sliced White Bread, crusts trimmed off.

Combine all ingredients and stir in enough of the milk to make a spreading consistency. Spread on bread and top with another slice. Cut into 4 triangles or use cookie cutters.

Spread #2

1 (8oz) pkg Cream Cheese, softened
3/4 cup chopped Walnuts
1/2 cup Maraschino Cherries, drained well and chopped
3/4 cup shredded Cheddar Cheese
3 Hard Cooked Eggs, chopped
1 Tbs. Pimiento, chopped
3 Tbs Salad Dressing (Does not say what kind! I am assuming Miracle Whip or Mayonnaise???)
2 Tbs chopped Sweet Pickles or Relish
1 tsp Prepared Mustard (again, does not specify as to type! Dijon? Yellow?)
1/4 tsp Onion Salt
Sliced Bread (Didn't specify what kind!?)

Mix everything and spread over bread. Makes 8 open-faced sandwiches. (Personally, I would prefer to make into finger sandwiches like the ones above!)
