Definitely a 5 or higher - we loved your Denver Broncos. I used Jumbo Jalapeno stuffed Olives , dried the olives well before wrapping the dough around them- I made them in the AM, refrigerated them until popping them in the oven just 15 minutes before serving.. Very easy recipe to make. This was the first appetizer to a Christmas Eve Buffet Enjoyed by all Thanks Iowahorse - this is a definate "DO AGAIN" I have already e-mailed it to a friend! — I made these again and as you can see by the photo they ran- I cut the recipe in half and may not have had quite enough flour this time.If cutting the recipe in half I reccomend 1 1/4 cups flour I simply cut them apart and they were wonderful-To make it easier to cover the Olives I suggest putting the dough in the fridge for 20 minutes after mixing - this recipe stays in my permanent Appetizer cook book!
