Afternoon Snack – Cucumber Rounds with Red Pepper Jelly

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.

Ingredients

1 cup of whipped cream cheese

1 minced clove of fresh garlic

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

Instructions:

  1. Cut cucumber with a crinkle cutter, like shown below.  It will help the cream cheese stay on the cucumber better.
  2. Mix whipped cream cheese with minced garlic, pepper, dried basil, and oregano.
  3. Spread cream cheese on cucumber round.
  4. Add a pea-sized amount red pepper jelly on each cucumber.
