Stuffed Snow Peas

3 doz. fresh snow peas
3/4 c. whipped cream cheese, softened

Trim ends from peas. Place in steaming basket. Plunge into boiling water and remove immediately. Place peas in a bowl of ice water to cool quickly. Remove from water and refrigerate.

Combine remaining ingredients except zest. Stir until smooth; chill at least 1 hr.

Carefully slit one side of each pod. Spoon cream mixture into pastry bag fitted with No. 18 tip. Pipe cheese mixture into peas, about 1 1/2 tsp. each. Sprinkle with rind. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
