Peel cucumbers. Cut in half lengthwise, remove seeds and pulpy parts, and stand for 20 minutes in salted ice water. Remove, rinse and boil for 6 minutes. Drain and wash in cold water. Heat butter and add chopped onion, and cook for 2 minutes until tender but not browned. Add flour and mix well. Slowly add milk. Add all other ingredients to this flour and milk combination. Mix well and season. Then stuff cucumbers with this mixture. Dust top of stuffing with cracker crumbs and sprinkle with paprika.
