cucumber

For afternoon tea we are having cucumber sandwiches and forgotten cookies! Yum.
Forgotten cookies are a great one to make the night before and forget about in the oven as you turn it off when you put them in.
cucumber sandwiches
some dill - chopped or I used the dill in a tube
a Lebanese cucumber finely sliced
soft butter or mayo
fresh white bread with crusts cut off
assemble the sandwiches, and cut into thirds, and serve freshly made
forgotten cookies (my granny's recipe)
2 egg whites beaten until firm
2/3 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1/2 cup chopped peacans
1/2 cup chocolate drops
pre-heat the oven to 185C. Beat the eggs till peaky and slowly add the sugar. Add the essence and fold in the chopped peacans & chocolate. Spoon onto a tray lined with grease-proof paper. Place in oven and turn the oven off! Leave overnight in the cooling oven or at least 5 hours. enjoy!
