Cucumber Finger Sandwiches

A couple of years ago a co-worker brought these to work and I thought they were wonderful.  I have made these for a few different gatherings and they always get gobbled up.  They are very simple to make.   I talked with my mom today and she asked for the recipe to take to a Christmas party that they are going to.

Cucumber Tea Sandwiches

1 loaf cocktail rye bread
1 8oz. pkg. cream cheese
1 pkg. ranch dressing mix
1 long English cucumber, sliced 1/4 inch thick
dried dillweed

Soften cream cheese and mix with ranch dressing mix.  Spread a T. on each slice of rye bread.  Top with cucumber slice and sprinkle with dillweed.

These are best made a couple of hours ahead and covered tightly with plastic wrap.  Refrigerate.  The moisture from the cucumber moistens the bread just a bit for a better texture.
