Turkey and Earl Grey Honey Butter Tea Sandwiches

  • FAST

You will need a coffee grinder to grind the tea leaves here.

  1. 1 stick (4 ounces) unsalted butter, softened
  2. 1 tablespoon honey
  3. 1 teaspoon Earl Grey tea (1 bag), finely ground
  4. Pinch of salt
  5. 1/2 Granny Smith apple, peeled and coarsely shredded
  6. 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  7. 16 thin slices pumpernickel bread
  8. 3/4 pound sliced smoked turkey
  1. In a mini food processor or in a bowl, blend the butter, honey, ground tea and salt. In a medium bowl, toss the apple with the lemon juice. Squeeze out any excess liquid and pulse or mix the apple into the honey butter.
  2. Spread a scant 1/2 tablespoon of the apple butter onto each slice of pumpernickel bread. Top half of the slices with the smoked turkey and close the sandwiches. Using a sharp serrated knife, trim off the bread crusts. Cut the sandwiches into 4 triangles, transfer to a plate and serve.
Make Ahead The uncut sandwiches can be covered with a lightly moistened paper towel and plastic wrap and refrigerated overnight. Bring to room temperature before serving.
