|Seriously good, easy to make: croissant sandwich bites- for tea or for any time.|
A while ago I hosted an "after church" tea. I made some really nice tea sandwiches: chicken, cucumber, my special minis with ham, cheese and turkey on whole wheat. I had a fruit salad and some phyllo and feta wraps too. I had cheese and bagels, and a dessert also. Why am I telling you all this? I'm just thinking back, reminiscing. That day I wanted to also offer croissant, raspberry and Nutella bites, but I ran out of time. I ran out of time, plus after making all the other sandwiches I was too exhausted to speed up and make anything else. I think everyone who came to the tea had a good time. There were no leftovers to speak of. Just a few pieces of cheese. The Nutella I had bought for the croissants sat on a shelf in the pantry until I remembered it last week and used some of it to make these really tasty and moist Reeses, Nutella and banana bars.
Then I remembered all about the croissant sandwiches I hadn't made. So I bought a single croissant and some raspberries and I invited myself to tea. A nice cuppa and a bite of a croissant, raspberry and Nutella sandwich. What a great idea that was! The raspberries came from Mexico, all the way here to the cold Northeast, and they were magical. They brought sunshine into the house. Best raspberries ever!

Get yourself some croissants. Butter or almond are fine. Say no to the broccoli ones. Get some raspberries or strawberries. Cut the croissants in half lenghwise.
Arrange raspberries on one half of the croissant.
Spread some Nutella on the other half of the croissant.
Here is my kitchen rooster posing with the croissandwich. Bring the two croissant halves together by folding the Nutella half over the raspberry half.
