  • Bake at 400 degrees for 16-18 mn. if refrigerated, if frozen 20-23 mn. No need to thaw.

  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. 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)
