These little orange cinnamon tea sandwiches are so surprisingly delicious. I remember having these when I was younger, and they’re even better as an adult. All the kiddos loved these and my sister and I literally could not stop snacking on them. With just 5 ingredients, making these little babies is a snap! I can’t wait to make these for back to school lunches for me and the kiddos too!

These sandwiches make a great school lunch too!
I’m always looking for something different for my kids lunches, especially at school time when I don’t have the option to make them something hot at home. These tea sandwiches are the perfect option! They’re filling and taste really special. For the kids, I usually leave out the pecans, or crush them up really small so they don’t know they’re there! So next time you’re looking for a creative solution to the lunch time dilemma, these are seriously delicious! And the flavors remind me of the Fall when school is starting back up, too!

Tea time for you and your kids is a great tradition
When I was a kid, my mom made these for a special tea party. I was always having tea parties as a kid. Anyone else? And now I love having tea with my kiddos and nieces. We make little sandwiches, little cakes, and delicious tea. We even went to a tea house nearby and had the most amazing tea time! All the (little and big) girls loved it!
My kids and I love to bake together, so we often make something in the morning and munch on it in the afternoon for our own “tea time”. I have tea and the kids have chocolate milk or juice. It’s such a great tradition and we all really look forward to it.
