Summary

Reduced fat cream cheese and light or fat free mayonnaise keep the fat out while adding a nice creamy texture. Horseradish and parsley or dill sprigs jazz these up.

What you'll need

  • 2 oz reduced fat cream cheese (Neufchatel), at room temperature
  • 2 tbsp. light or fat-free mayonaise
  • 1 tbsp. drained prepared horseradish
  • 1 large peeled cucumber (about 12 ounces), preferably seedless
  • 18 small parsley or dill sprigs

Instructions

  • Step 1
    Combine the cream cheese, mayonnaise, and horseradish; chill at least 30 minutes. Score the cucumber lengthwise with the tines of a fork. Cut the cucumber crosswise into 1/2-inch slices, making 18. Using a melon baller or 1/2 teaspoon measuring spoon, scoop out a small hollow on the straight side. Do not cut all the way through.
  • Step 2
    Transfer the cream cheese mixture to a pastry bag fitted with a fluted tip. Pipe the cheese mixture into the cucumber cups. (Use a small spoon if a pastry bag is not available.) Garnish the tops of the cups with parsley or dill sprigs.
  • Step 3
    Serve hot with barbecue sauce for dipping. (Recipe makes 18 cups)
