This recipe is an easy and tasty appetizer or afternoon snack. It was simple to prepare and refreshing to eat! I received the red pepper jelly from Jonathan’s Mom and was excited to use it. The red pepper jelly was sweet and really quite lovely.
I used a Pampered Chef crinkle cutter to slice the cucumber. If you don’t have one you can just slice the cucumber with a regular knife. However, if you would like to buy a fun kitchen gadget, this could be for you. It makes slicing vegetables more fun and gives them texture.
1 cup of whipped cream cheese
1/8 tsp of black pepper
1/8 tsp of dried basil
1/8 tsp of oregano
1 cucumber sliced with crinkle cutter (depending on how many you would like to make)
Enough red pepper jelly for a pea-sized amount on each cucumber
- Cut cucumber with a crinkle cutter, like shown below. It will help the cream cheese stay on the cucumber better.
- Mix whipped cream cheese with minced garlic, pepper, dried basil, and oregano.
- Spread cream cheese on cucumber round.
- Add a pea-sized amount red pepper jelly on each cucumber.
