Baked Cucumbers

4 cucumbers, peeled and quartered, lengthwise
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 teaspoon dill seed, crushed
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
1 teaspoon salt

Place a layer of cucumbers in the bottom of an 8" x 8" x 2" baking dish and dot with half
of the butter or margarine. Mix together the seasonings, and sprinkle half over the layer of
cucumbers. Add a second layer of cucumbers, dot with butter, and sprinkle with
remaining seasonings. Bake, uncovered, in a hot oven (400º F) for 1 hour. Stir cucumbers
lightly once, pushing the top layers to the bottom and lifting the bottom cucumbers to the
top. Serve hot.
