There was a great tea sandwich recipe (Pernod-marinated fennel and apple) in CHOW recently that I would love to try, and perhaps you would be interested also:

For the goat cheese I'll be subbing tofutti.

Here'e the splash page for the full tea party feature:

Here's the pie recipe:

1 1/2 cups raspberries
1 1/2 cups strawberries, sliced (I cut them into small chunks)
1 cup blueberries
1 prebaked pie shell (I usually use a graham cracker crust)
/34 cup sugar
3 T cornstarch
1 1/2 cups water
1 (4 serving) package flavored gelatin
cool whip or whipped cream for garnish

Mix sugar and cornstarch in a medium saucepan. Gradually stir in water until smooth. Cook over medium heat, stirring, until mixture boils. Boil 1 minute (mixture will be thick). Remove from heat. Stir in gelatin. Cool to room temperature.  Combine berries and place in the pie crust. Pour cooled gelatin mixture over berries. Refridgerate at least 3 hours. Garnish with cool whip or whipped cream.

As a side note, you can substitute all strawberries for the  berries (4 cups). I also usually put a small layer of gelatin in the bottom of the crust before I add in the berries to keep the crust from getting soggy.  Also, fresh berries are best, but if you use frozen berries, be sure to drain them , or the gelatin won't set (because of the extra water).

awesome, thanks for the recipe. i'm gonna try making one of those this weekend but with strawberries and raspberries only, to see how it comes out. if the seeds are too much for me, i might try just mixing some raspberry juice into the gelatin for the flavor...

You can even use strawberries with raspberry jello.  Smiley

no matter what i make, small sandwiches are the biggest hit.  get a few bagaettes, and make the bakery slice them (plan on this annoying the baking staff).

speads can be anything.
goatcheese, cucumber, pepper
hummus and roasted red pepper
egg salad
spinach dip and sredded carrot.
