Hello! Erin from The Forest Feast here, with a simple entertaining idea. These little Olive Pastry Bites are quick, easy and impressive. Not to mention tasty!! Simply wrap big pitted olives in puff pasty, sprinkle with parmesan and bake. Warm out of the oven, they are a fun addition to cocktail hour!
1 small jar of stuffed green olives (pimento, garlic, almond or blue cheese stuffed. Approx 24 olives)
1 package puff pastry (store bought, defrosted)
1/4c grated parmesan cheese
Drain and pat dry the olives using paper towels. Using a jar lid or a small glass, cut circles out of the puff pastry dough. Place an olive in the middle of each pastry circle and pinch to enclose the olive fully. Place the wrapped olives on a cookie sheet (pinch side down) and sprinkle each with a pinch of parmesan. Bake according to the pastry’s packaging instructions- approx 20 min at 350 degrees (or until they are golden).
