easy little appetizer, I didn't have hot sauce so I used crushed red pepper flakes. I think next time I'll add a tsp of Good Season's Italian dressing mix. Made for ZWT8 trip to Australia / New Zealand. Thanks Alaina!

I loved the idea of these, but thought the end result needed more "oomph". They were a terrific use of garden cucumbers, easy to make, & who doesn't like cream cheese? We liked the pecans & hot sauce, but thought they'd be better with additional seasoning. Maybe ranch mix? I'll enjoy experimenting so thank you for the idea!

I had to take a "finger food" dish into work so I happened to have all the ingredients. I don't eat "raw" cucumbers so I let my co-workers assess the rating. This gets a 4, first for how easy it is to make. The main comment I got back was that it needs more suggestion was maybe adding some horseradish or more hot sauce. Made for ZWT8 and The Wild Bunch.
