”This is a refreshing snack on a hot summer day,” notes field editor Janis Plourde from Smooth Rock Falls, Ontario. ”It’s simple, plus it offers a light change from heartier party foods.”

Ingredients

  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1 pound seedless globe grapes, rinsed and patted dry

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese, confectioners' sugar, lemon juice and peel until blended. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  2. Cut a deep "X" in the top of each grape to within 1/4 in. of bottom. Carefully spread each grape apart. Transfer cream cheese mixture to a heavy-duty resealable plastic bag; cut a small hole in a corner of bag. Pipe filling into grapes. Refrigerate until serving.
