    Small sandwiches without crusts

    I think the idea here is that they are fiddly and require more time to make.

    Meant to be eaten in one or two bites, so you do not have to set them down anywhere. Finger food. Finger sandwiches.

    It's like small snacks that may be served with wine at a party?

    Actual "finger sandwiches" are long, narrow sandwiches (with a variety of different fillings) served during cocktail parties or other social gatherings. They are designed to be easily eaten in a few bites, without any mess (no plate necessary). They are called "finger" sandwiches due to their long, narrow shape - about the size of an index finger.
