Avocado and Tomato Cucumber Cups /#TasteCreations

Today I am participating in a fun and tasty Mother's Day Brunch Party! Each participant made a different recipe that is perfect for serving on this special day, and I brought along an appetizer I think you will love! Avocado and Tomato Cucumber Cups are tasty, pretty, very simple and easy to put together! 

Avocado and Tomato Cucumber Cups
(1 cucumber makes 6-8 pieces)
(printable recipe at end of post)

1 Cucumber
2-3 ounces Chive and Onion Whipped Cream Cheese, softened
1/4 Avocado
8-10 Small Grape Tomatoes
Shredded Four Cheese
Black Pepper

Wash and peel your cucumbers. Cut into slices approx. 3/4" thick. Use a 1/4  teaspoon measuring spoon to scoop out the seeds in the middle of the cucumber. Remember to not cut in to the bottom!

Place the cream cheese in a pastry bag with a decorative tip. I used a Wilton size 1M. Pipe cream cheese into each scooped out cucumber. Any flavor that you like will work. There was a Garden Vegetable flavor at the grocery, that I thought might be great with these, but I decided on the chive and onion because of it's bold flavor. But the Garden Vegetable would taste great too!
Open and cut your avocado and wash the tomatoes. I used small tomatoes called "rubies" and I used the smallest ones in the package. You could use bigger ones by slicing them in half and only using a half on each cucumber. Add a small slice of avocado into the cream cheese, next to the tomato.
Add a few pieces of shredded cheese, and sprinkle with black pepper.

Serve to friends and family! Enjoy!
