70. No-cook scotch cucumber treats - gobbled up when it's hot
People love ice-cold snacks on a miserably hot afternoon/evening. These DISAPPEAR when I bring them to a party in the middle of summer.

chilled cucumbers
1 pack of Philly cream cheese
scotch - a sample size bottle will be enough if you don't usually keep this around the house
Worcestershire sauce
lox pieces (big delis/supermarkets that sell lox by weight usually sell containers of "scraps" relatively cheap)
Metal plate

I do this out of my head, to taste, so I don't know any of the proportions.

First, refrigerate the metal plate

Then, using a fork, score the cucumber, then cut it into slices about 1/4"-1/2" wide
Combine the cream cheese, scotch, Worcestershire, Tabasco and horseradish to taste - you just want to add a little zip, not make it actually hot. You should be able to taste the scotch, but it shouldn't be overwhelming.
Pipe or spread cream cheese mix onto the cucumbers. Decorate each one with an "X", using the lox pieces.
Put on the metal plate, and re-refrigerate until ready to serve.
