Grate cheese, let soften. Mix cheese, margarine, flour, seasonings and water. Work into a smooth dough. Use a piece of dough about the size of a walnut and flatten with fingers. Press dough smoothly around each olive. Bake on a greased baking sheet at 350F for 15-20 minutes, or until light brown. Freeze before baking if desired.
Yield: About 6 doz.
Variation: Use dates or pecan halves instead of olives.
