A tasty appetizer recipe I got from my mother-in-law. These can be served hot or cold.

Top Review by KelBel

WOW WOW WOW! These are amazing! I am making them right now for a party I am having tonight, and I tried one, and boy are they good! I used large olives that had about 40 to a can, so I doubled the remaining ingredients. I used a garlic/onion flavored almond and reduced fat mexican blend cheese. You need to work the dough together completely. Originally, I only got 15 out of the first batch, but took a little dough off of each and was able to make the last 5. Roll them in the palm of your hand to make a tastey little appetizer. Will make these again and again! Thanks Lainey!
