Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: n/a
- 8 oz. cream cheese, softened
- 8 oz. Feta cheese crumbled
- 3 tablespoon half & half
- 2 tablespoon fresh dill (or 2 teaspoon dried)
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
- 4 medium cucumbers, cut into 4-5 equal-sized sections*
Fresh dill and/or mint sprigs
- In a large bowl, mix together cream cheese, Feta cheese, half & half, dill weed, and garlic powder. Season with salt and black pepper to taste. Use a hand mixer or immersion blender to mix everything until it is light and fluffy. Set the bowl aside.
- Cut each cucumber section so that the bottom is flat and the top is angled. Carefully scoop out the inside of each section with a small measuring spoon, 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. Then, set the cucumber cups on a serving platter.
- Serve immediately garnished with sprigs of fresh dill and/or mint, if desired
