Creamy Dill Cucumber Toasties


When I asked Scott to go to the store and get me a bunch of cilantro, he came home with a bunch of dill. I already had a bunch of dill in the refrigerator! So, what to do with all of this dill...
I chopped up one bunch and put it in a ziplock bag and froze it. With the other bunch... I went to my 'go to' recipe site http://www.allrecipes.com/ and found an appetixer that uses dill and has great reviews. I made Creamy Dill Cucumber Toasties. The kids... especially Scott, LOVED these!
In the reviews, people mentioned to make the cream cheese spread at least a day ahead of time, try using fat free sour cream instead of the cream cheese (I used 1/3 less fat cream cheese) and also that they're good using the small loaf of Pumpernickle bread. I'll try that next time.
