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

Makes: 32 or so

  • 1 loaf cocktail pumpernickel (or regular size and cut into smaller shapes)
  • 2 cucumbers
  • 6-8 ounces cream cheese
  • 1/2 small white onion
  • couple sprigs tarragon
  • salt to taste
  1. Peel and grate the onion over a small bowl; press grated onion through a sieve to capture the juice.
  2. In a medium bowl mash cream cheese with about 2 tablespoons onion juice. Add salt and chopped tarragon to taste.
  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.
  5. Arrange on a plate and sprinkle with a little more tarragon.
