  • 22 servings


  • 1 (4.5 oz.) jar Lindsay┬« Almond Stuffed Spanish Olives, drained

  • 6 oz. goat cheese

  • 4 oz. cream cheese, softened

  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted, finely chopped

Cooking Directions

  1. Place olives in a colander; rinse under cold water. Pat dry with paper towels.

  2. In a medium bowl, combine goat cheese and cream cheese. Form a rounded teaspoon of the cheese mixture into a small ball, and transfer to a parchment-lined baking sheet; repeat with remaining cheese mixture, making 22 balls. Chill for 30 minutes or until firm.

  3. In each ball, make a small indent with your finger. Place an almond stuffed olive into the indent and mold the cheese around the olive. Roll back into a ball shape with the olive completely encased in the cheese. Place almonds in a small bowl; roll each ball in almonds to coat lightly.

  4. Serve immediately or chill until ready to serve. Serve cold.
