cheesy cucumber bites

6 oz. cheddar cheese
1 package (8 oz) cream cheese
3 to 4 tablespoons milk
1/4 tsp dried dill
1/8 tsp garlic powder
pinch ground black pepper
2 seedless cucumbers, trimmed

1. Cut up cheddar cheese and place in food processor. Pulse until broken up and almost ground. Add cream cheese, milk, dill, garlic powder and pepper. Pulse to blend evenly. Transfer to a large heavy duty plastic bag.
2. Peel cucumber in vertical strips. Cut into 3/4 inch thick slices,about 15 per cucumber. Scoop a small amount of flesh from the center of each slice. Let slices sit, hollow-side down, onpaper towels for 5 minutes.
3. Snip a corner from the bag with filling. Pipe the filling into each cucumber slice, dividing equally. Serve immediately.
