Tea Sandwich Saturday #45 - Cashew Curry Tea Sandwiches

This week's recipe is inspired by one I found in a tea cookbook a decade or so ago. I've since lost the recipe, but I remember the main ingredients were cream cheese, curry (a little too much, as I recall!) and cashews.

I think it's unfortunate that so many people today have nut allergies, and my condolences if you are one of them! I absolutely love nuts, from peanuts and cashews and almonds to hazelnuts, pecans, walnuts and Brazil nuts. There's nuttin' a nut won't make better, in my opinion. So here's the recipe I made for Cashew Curry Spread, which I believe is a lighter version of the one I made years ago. (But if you have a tea cookbook with that old recipe in it, please share!)

Cashew Curry Spread

1 (8-ounce) package of cream cheese
1/4 cup cashew nuts (reserve a few whole ones for garnish)
1 teaspoon curry powder
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard

Add all ingredients in bowl of food processor and pulse until combined into a nice thick paste. Yields 1 cup of spread, enough for about 24 small tea sandwiches.


  1. Those look yummy! Wish I had some with my tea today.

  2. I adore cashews and this would be soooo good. I must remember this one for the future or even just for myself the next time I have cashews on hand. Love putting cashews in granola too, so I need to get some soon.

  3. Your Cashew Curry Tea Sandwiches sound delicious - good flavor combo. I've seen recipes for plain curry-butter tea sandwiches in several old books, but not this version with cream cheese and nuts.

  4. Oooh, this is right up my alley!

  5. wonderful..I will have the whole tray thank you so much :)

  6. Yum. How did you know I bought a can of cashews at the grocery store? :-)
