Cucumber Pumpernickel Hors d'oeuvres

Author Notes: I was in a jam late Sunday afternoon and needed appetizers in a hurry. These just popped into my dome. And then into my mouth! This recipe is not exact in measurements, but the next time I make it I'll edit.Sadassa_Ulna

  1. Peel and grate the onion over a small bowl; press grated onion through a sieve to capture the juice.

  3. Toast the pumpernickel shapes until toasted but still a little chewy.
  4. Spread cream cheese mixture on toasts. Top with thin slices of peeled cucumber.
