Ingredients:

10 ounces chevre goat cheese, at room temperature
1/2 cup chopped, salted, roasted pecans
1 tablespoon honey, preferably mesquite or wildflower
8 slices square, firm cinnamon-raisin bread

Directions:

Combine the goat cheese, pecans and honey in a medium bowl and, using a rubber spatula, blend thoroughly.

Cut the crusts from the bread and set aside for another purpose.

Using 2 slices of the bread, make a sandwich, taking care to spread the goat cheese in an even layer all and the way to the edges of the bread. With a large serrated knife, cut the sandwich diagonally in both directions to create 4 equal triangles. Repeat with the remaining bread and spread to make 16 tea sandwiches.

Ingredients:

1 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped chives
1 teaspoon high-quality white truffle oil, such as Sabatino or Urbani
Kosher salt
Ground white pepper
8 slices square, firm white bread

1/4 cup mayonnaise
3 tablespoons chopped scallions, white and green parts (about 2 scallions)
1 1/2 tablespoons finely chopped chives
1 teaspoon high-quality white truffle oil, such as Sabatino or Urbani (we skip this for kiddos but love to use for adults)
Kosher salt
Ground white pepper
8 slices square, firm white or whole wheat bread

Directions:

Place the eggs in a single layer in a medium saucepan, cover with water and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil the eggs for 1 minute and then remove the saucepan from the heat and let the eggs stand for 15 minutes. Drain and rinse the eggs under cold water until they are cool enough to handle. Peel and place the peeled eggs in a large bowl.

Mash the eggs to a coarse consistency using a fork or a potato masher. Add the mayonnaise, scallions, chives, truffle oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper and mix thoroughly to combine. Adjust the seasonings to taste.

Cut the crusts from the bread and set aside for another purpose.
