They can be made them with a variety of olives - pimento stuffed, green, plump kalamata,
Provencal - just make sure they are pitted. We like to use strongly flavored olives;
the flavor of canned ripe olives disappears in the puff pastry. You can make these ahead,
and freeze; allow 30 minutes for the pastry to thaw before baking. Another advantage:
the kids like to make them and eat them.
Ingredients - 24 pimento-stuffed green olives -
1 (17.25 ounce) package frozen puff pastry, thawed.
Directions - Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Cut pastry into strips about 6 inches long and 1/2 inch wide. Wrap a belt of pastry around each
olive. Place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
