Cream Cheese Cucumbers

This is a recipe I came up with when I decided (at the last minute) that I needed something savoury to serve for some friends who were popping over for morning tea.  I was so happy with the result - they look gorgeous, taste great and are a perfect, healthy little addition to the table.

1 cucumber (whichever variety you have in the fridge is fine!)
125g cream cheese
Squeeze of lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon paprika
fresh chives, to serve

Combine cream cheese, lemon juice and paprika in a small bowl.  Transfer to a piping bag with a large star tip.

Cut cucumber into thick rounds.  Pipe a rosette of cream cheese mixture onto each piece of cucumber.

Top each with two pieces of chopped chives.
