Tasty Tuesday - Cucumber Bites with Garlic Herb Filling

Anything with Boursin cheese on/in it is a winner in my book. Try these super simple appetizers for your next get together!

Cucumber Bites with Garlic Herb Filling
Photo and recipe found on Annie's Eats.

For the filling:
1 (5.2 oz) package garlic herb Boursin cheese
2-3 tbsp. heavy cream

To serve:
1 cucumber, peeled (partially or totally, as desired)

To make the filling, place the boursin in a small bowl. Add in 2 tablespoons of the heavy cream and stir with a fork until lightened and smooth. If needed, stir in an additional tablespoon of cream until the mixture is a good consistency for piping. Transfer the mixture to a pastry bag fitted with a decorative tip; set aside.

Slice the cucumber into ½-inch thick slices. Gently scoop out most of the seeds from the center of each slice, leaving a small portion to keep the filling from falling out. Arrange the slices on a serving platter. Pipe a dollop of the filling onto each cucumber slice. Serve chilled. (Note: These can be assembled and refrigerated up to 6 hours in advance of serving.)

PS - I will announce the winner of the Sneakpeeq giveaway tomorrow!
