Lilly Flower Tea Sandwiches

1 8oz container cream cheese
6 Green onions
1 tablespoon thyme
1 loaf White Bread DO NOT FREEZE BREAD
Mix cheeses, salt, pepper and thyme together.
Using a scalloped edge or round cookie cutter (2 inch diameter), cut bread and flatten each piece with a rolling pin. Spread enough cheese to cover the bread. Pinch together 1/3 of the round to form an open cone. Place a sliver of carrot into the throat of each cone. Place a stalk of green onion at the base for the stem. Serve on a platter. Makes 20 flowers sandwiches.
