Ingredients
  • 6   ounces 
    cheddar cheese
  • 1   package 
    (8 ounces) 1/3-less-fat cream cheese
  • 3   tablespoons 
    milk
  • 1/4  teaspoon 
    dried dill
  • 1/8  teaspoon 
    garlic powder
  •  
    Pinch ground black pepper
  • 2   
    seedless cucumbers, trimmed
Directions
1.
Cut up cheddar cheese and place in a food processor. Pulse until broken up and almost ground. Add cream cheese, milk, dill, garlic powder and pepper. Pulse to blend evenly. Transfer to a large heavy-duty plastic bag.
2.
Peel cucumbers in strips, or peel whole cucumber, if desired. Cut into 3/4-inch-thick slices, about 15 per cucumber. Using a melon-baller, spoon or measuring spoon, scoop a small amount of flesh from the centers of the slices. Let slices sit, hollow-side down, on paper towels for 5 minutes.
3.
Snip a corner from the bag with filling. Pipe filling into each cucumber slice, dividing equally. Serve immediately. Note: You may prepare and refrigerate filling ahead of time; let warm up slightly before piping into cucumbers.
