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!

Biscuit Blossoms

If you are looking for something special to serve family and/or guests, these simple and quick to make Biscuit Blossoms are sure to put a smile on the face of everyone at the table! You might just have most of the ingredients already in your fridge! The blossoms are made from Honey Crescents. I used strawberry yogurt for the filling, topped it with whipped cream, shaved milk chocolate, and a strawberry. See what I mean, simple and quick! Oh, and this is even better~make the biscuits the day before you are serving. Put them in sealed container to keep them fresh. That way on the day you are serving them, you can put them all together while your whipping cream is whipping!
