Cucumber Cream Cheese Ghosts

Cream Cheese Ghosts 1 title mark

When it comes to Halloween-themed foods, I feel like all I ever see are sweet treats. There’s not enough savory recipes! As much as I like the sweet stuff, there is only so much sugar I can take!

How cute are these little ghosties?! They are basically little tea sandwiches, but in a much cooler shape. They are a lot of fun for all ages and you can use whatever flavors of cream cheese you like best! I served these at a party I had last weekend to break up all the sugary stuff.

I will tell you that it can be a little tricky to spread the cream cheese over the cucumber. Using thin slices of the cucumber and whipped cream cheese makes it easier, but if you are finding it too difficult, you could always just skip the cucumbers!

You will need:

loaf of bread

whipped cream cheese

cucumber, peeled and sliced thin


ghost shaped cookie cutter

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Using the cookie cutter, cut the ghost shapes out of each slice of bread. Place the ghosts on a baking sheet. Toast for about 5 minutes until lightly golden.

3. Spread a thin layer of the cream cheese on top of each piece of toast (it will help the cucumbers stay in place). Depending on the size of your cookie cutter, you may need to cut some of the cucumbers in half to fit them on the toast. I only placed cucumbers on the main body of the ghosts. Spread more of the cream cheese on top of the cucumbers until they are covered.

4. Take three currants and make the eyes and the mouth. Serve.

    We are going to go for it. We are moving to Garden State Park in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. We are going to use Ryans curly hair as a down payment. We are going to put a second kitchen in the basement. My wife can set the kitchen on fire anytime she wants and I can have all the gay sex I want in the basement. Jealous, you should be! We have a buick! Jealous, you should be! We are going to get the end unit townhome and all of us are getting purses! Jealous, you should be! Our sons work as gay hustlers! Jealous, you should be!
