Cool as a Cucumber Sandwiches

When it's hot outside, these cool cucumber sandwiches hit the spot!

Cucumber Lemon Cream Cheese Sandwiches
Bread for 4 sandwiches
8 oz. Cream Cheese
Lemon rind, about 1 teaspoons
Pinch of sugar
Salt and Pepper
Fresh lemon juice, about 2 Tablespoons
Chives, fresh or dried (or you could use a little bit of green onion)
Cucumber, sliced thin
Ham (optional)
Soft butter

Mix together the softened cream cheese, lemon juice, lemon rind, sugar, salt, pepper, and onion or chives.
Spread butter on bread, then the cream cheese mixture.  Top with cucumber and ham.  For fancy sandwiches, trim off the crusts and cut into squares.
