Heart-A-Stack Sandwiches Print E-mail

The red of the cranberries goes nicely with our Valentine's theme. The sandwiches have a slightly sweet but tangy zip.

Find a heart-shaped cookie cutter that is large enough to use up most of the bread. The edges of the bread can be torn up and given to the birds.

{Makes 4 sandwiches}

You'll need:

  • 8 slices of whole wheat bread
  • 1/3 pound of turkey - deli style or left over
  • Cream cheese
  • 1 can of cranberry sauce - the chunky kind is best
  • 1/3 cup of walnut pieces
  • A little adult help


  • A butter knife
  • A large heart shaped cookie cutter
  • Plates
  • A toaster

  1. Start by cutting out the heart shapes with the cookie cutter.
  2. Lightly toast the bread. This makes it much easier to spread the cream cheese. Remember not to stick anything metal down into the toaster if the bread gets stuck. Chopsticks or a wooden spoon are much better tools for this task.
  3. Place the toasted bread on a plate and spread cream cheese about 1/4 of an inch on one side.
  4. Spread the cranberry sauce over the cream cheese.
  5. Sprinkle on the walnuts.
  6. Next cut the turkey with the cookie cutter. Lay that on the second bread heart and close the sandwich. A sweet and tart treat for your Valentine.
