Here is Nicole's Recipe for Cucumber Cream Cheese Bites. 

Ingredients: Long English Cucumbers (or regular), Cream Cheese, Ranch Dressing, Scallions, Paprika, and Dill

1. Cut each cucumber into 3/4 inch disks.  Using a melon baller or spoon, scoop out the middle of the cucumber. 

2. Use cream cheese that has been brought to room temp, so it is soft.  Put the cream cheese into a bowl with 1 tsp. dill, and 2 tbsp. ranch dressing.  Mix and taste.  You can always add more ranch dressing! 

3. Using a pastry bag (if you are fancy) or just a spoon, fill the cucumber cups until they are slightly over the rim.  

4. Garnish with chopped scallions.  Plate up and sprinkle with paprika and dill for color and flavor.  Viola! Easy and delicious!
