Ingredients   Preparation
  1. Mix the cream cheese, chopped scallions, and dill in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Use a cookie cutter to create 3 coffin-shaped pieces from each slice of bread so that you end up with 48 pieces. If you do not have a cookie cutter: cut sandwich in coffin shapes, 2 slices at a time, to create matching sized pieces.
  3. Spread the cream cheese mixture on 24 of the small coffin pieces. 
  4. Top with tapenade, caviar, or smoked salmon as desired. 
  5. Add the matching coffin pieces on top to create each canape.
  6. Arrange on a serving tray.
  7. Cut the roasted red peppers into 24 equal long pieces and 48 equal short pieces to make the cross on each coffin.
  8. Arrange one long piece of red pepper and 2 short pieces on the top of each sandwich to form the cross.
Swizzle Trick:  Add a tombstone, bat, vampire or other graveyard items to your serving tray for a fun presentation.
