The morning rush of just getting out the door with the kids is always exacerbated by holidays. On Valentine’s Day, I like to go the extra mile and do something special for my little Valentines too, but I’d like to try to at least get to work at a reasonable time.
These little heart sandwiches fit the bill. They’re a cheery reminder of the holiday without holding preventing me from getting to work on time.
Besides, Alex is perfectly capable of inhibiting my ability to get to work. His lunches shouldn’t have to.
These little bite-sized sandwiches are quick and easy. You could certainly substitute any berry combination cookie cutter shape you’d like.
Raspberry Mascarpone Heart Sandwiches
from Weelicious Lunches
mascarpone cheese (or cream cheese)
Mix together a dollop of mascarpone and a teaspoon or two of raspberry jam. Spread on two pieces of bread. Cut the raspberries in half and lay them across one slice of bread. Cut little shapes out of your sandwich if you’re so inclined.
Whatever you do, do not throw away the scraps. That’s a cook’s breakfast! Lucky you!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
