Ingredients
  

  • 4 medium Cucumbers, cut into 2 inch sections Peel, partially, or leave skin on.
  • 8 oz. Cream cheese, softened
  • 8 oz. Feta cheese, crumbled
  • 3 Tablespoons Half & half
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh dill Can sub 2 teaspoons dried dill
  • 1 teaspoon Garlic powder

Instructions
 

  • Place cream cheese, Feta, half & half, dill, and garlic powder in a large mixing bowl and season with salt and black pepper, to taste. Beat with a hand mixer or immersion blender until mixture is light and fluffy. Set aside.
  • Trim each cucumber section so that the bottom is flat and top is slightly angled. Carefully scoop out the interior of each section with a small measuring spoon or melon baller, leaving enough space on the bottom and sides to form a small “cup.”
  • Transfer some of the whipped Feta mixture to a pastry bag fitted with a large tip (or use a plastic sandwich bag with one of the bottom corners removed). Carefully pipe the whipped Feta into each cucumber cup and set on a serving platter.
  • Serve immediately garnished with sprigs of fresh dill and/or mint, if desired. Enjoy!
