Cookie Cutter Sandwiches

Cookie cutter sandwiches are a fun idea to make for any party or event. And they are so easy! You will need a few supplies:

  • Thin sandwich bread (Pane da Tramezzini)
  • Mayonnaise
  • Tuna
  • Cookie Cutters to fit your party theme

If you, or your kids, do not care for tuna, you substitute thin sliced meats and cheeses or peanut butter and jelly for the sandwich filling. The traditional “tramezzino” sandwich here in Italy has tuna in it.

Place two layers of bread on top of each other so that you cutter shapes will be the same for your sandwich (if you have thicker bread, you may only be able to do one at a time). Place your cookie cutter on top of your bread. Try and leave as little space as possible between your cutter and the border, so that none of the scraps go to waste.

Press down firmly and evenly on your cutter until it has sliced through both layers of bread (metal cutters work best). Cut of any edges with a sharp knife.

Mix your tuna. We just put mayonnaise and tuna in ours.

Begin filling your sandwiches. Coating one layer of the bread with the tuna. Make sure you try and get as close to the edge as possible, so that the sandwich isn’t dry. You can use thin slice meats and cheeses or peanut butter and jelly at this stage if you prefer.

Put your sandwich lid on top, matching the shape below. Set them out on your food table on a tray or plate for everyone to enjoy! These sandwiches are super easy to make and kids love the shapes. You can make them to fit any party theme! We have made everything from comic word bubbles, to horses, to narwhals, to unicorns! Let your kids get in on the fun! This is an easy project for kids to help out on. They will enjoy using the cutters and creating different shapes.
