Appealing to reduce energy (4)


I believe the answer is:


'appealing' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'reduce energy' is the wordplay.
'reduce' becomes 'cut' (synonyms).
'energy' becomes 'e' (physics symbol as in E=mc2).

'to' is the link.

(Other definitions for cute that I've seen before include "Location" , "Endearing" , "Shrewd" , "Smart" , "Charming, quaint" .)

I've seen this clue in The Mirror.
