Calla Lily Tea Sandwiches

I ran across this tea sandwich recipe, which I thought was just delightful.
Calla Lily Tea Sandwiches

Makes about 4 dozen
1 (5.2-ounce) package garlic and herbs cheese, softened
1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup finely chopped toasted walnuts
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
48 slices white bread
2 carrots, peeled
Garnish: green onion

1. In a small bowl, combine cheese, cream cheese, walnuts, red pepper, and black pepper. Beat at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy.
2. Using a 2 1/2-inch cutter, cut 48 rounds from bread. With a rolling pin, roll each bread round to 1/8-inch thickness.
3. Spread about 1 teaspoon cream cheese mixture on each bread round. Sprinkle center with paprika, and fold bottom of prepared bread round over, pinching end to seal. Cut small pieces of carrot, and place in center of each sandwich for flower stamen. Garnish with green onion tops to form stems, if desired.

I.E. Boursin garlic and fine herbs cheese.
