When making finger sandwiches, place the bread in the freezer for a few moments to cut it easily. To make butter spread for watercress or cucumber sandwiches, combine 4 tablespoons softened butter, 1 tablespoon fresh herbs and 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest. Spread the mixture evenly onto the bread.

When making ham sandwiches, spread mayonnaise onto one-half of a split loaf of French bread, and layer Brie, ham and thin apple slices onto the bread before cutting the sandwich into pieces. Alternately, spread any soft cheese spread over small pieces of thinly sliced bread, and add the desired fillings; do not cut the crusts off the bread.

Another option is to apply an even layer of spread on a tortilla, and layer fresh spinach leaves and sun-dried tomato on the tortilla. Wrap the tortilla up as usual. Cut the tortilla into pieces to make pinwheel-style sandwiches.
