Equipment

  • Immersion blender, food processor or hand mixer
  • Vegetable Peeler
  • Small Melon Baller or small spoon
  • Pastry Bag with large tip

Ingredients
  

  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 8 oz feta cheese crumbled
  • 3 T half and half
  • 2 T dill fresh or 2 t dried
  • 1 t garlic powder
  • sea salt and black pepper to taste
  • 4 med English cucumbers cut into 1 ½ inch pieces

Instructions
 

  • On a cutting board, slice cucumbers into 1 1/2 inch even pieces. Trim each the cucumber slices so that the bottom is flat, and top is slightly angled.
  • Carefully scoop out the interior of each section with a small measuring spoon, leaving enough space on the bottom and sides to form a small “cup.”
  • Place cream cheese, feta cheese, half & half, dill, and garlic powder in a large 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.
  • Transfer some of the whipped Feta and cream cheese 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 one of the thick slices of cucumber cup and set on a serving platter. Serve immediately garnished with sprigs of fresh dill and/or mint, if desired. Enjoy!
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container up to a day.
