A Delicious Appetizer From the1950's, and a guilty pleasure to boot!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cream all the ingredients except olives, knead to form a dough. Wrap around the olives individually. At this point you can place them on a cookie sheet and freeze then put them in a gallon sized bag for later, or refrigerate for at least one hour.
  2. Bake at 400 degrees for 16-18 mn. if refrigerated, if frozen 20-23 mn. No need to thaw.

I used crescent rolls and cut the triangles into 3 separate pieces. I tried the phyllo dough but thought it was too difficult to use! I pressed shredded cheddar cheese into the dough. Sprinkled with garlic salt and/or paprika. I tried the pimento stuffed large green olives and I also tried almond stuffed and Jalapeño stuffed olives too. Very easy and we really liked them. Grpa

Oh, so flavorful. I loved them. Thanks for such a great recipe. I put everything in the food processor, except for the olives. It took 2 minutes to make. I had some blue cheese stuffed olives, so used those. Be careful if you eat them warm, because the olives inside they stay VERY hot.

These are extremely tasty little bites. I only gave it 4 stars (for now) because mine did not hold their shape and looked more like cookies with a baby bump, than like balls. This was most likely my fault, because I used a toaster oven rather than my gas oven (it wasn't working at the time). I will deinately try these again (the taste is very good). I highly recommend using "sharp" cheddar. I will also put a pinch more of the seasonings in next time. I will post a revised review when I can make them correctly. Thank you for posting your olive puffs recipe. (Made for New Kids tag)
