Oh, Happy May!!!

We had such a lovely day yesterday ~ we held our annual spring tea party...
 "The Language of Flowers"

One of the delicious items on the menu were these cucumbers with herbed cream cheese.  
They were super easy to make, and everyone enjoyed them!

We thought they'd be a lovely recipe for you to try out...
easy to make and an excellent option instead of carrot sticks and dip!

with Herbed Cream Cheese

1 English cucumber
8 oz Cream Cheese, softened
1/4 minced fresh dill
2 tablespoons dill pickle juice
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

Minced chives for garnish

Combine together the cream cheese, dill, dill pickle juice, 
onion powder, garlic powder, and black pepper 
with a mixer on high until smooth.
Place mixture into a pastry bag with a tip of your choice,
 or use a zip-lock bag and snip the corner of the bag off.  

Take a peeler and peel some of the cucumber skin, 
making a striped pattern.  
Then slice into 1/4 inch rounds.  
Pipe the cream cheese mixture onto the cucumber.  
Sprinkle minced chives over the cream cheese cucumbers. 
Serve immediately.

Enjoy your day!
