These make wonderful snacks or salty nibbles to go with cocktails. To make them, pitted olives (whichever type you like most, or use a variety), are wrapped up in a simple dough that's flecked with grated Parmesan cheese and baked to golden brown perfection. The dough needs to chill for at least a half hour before rolling out and cutting into rounds, and then the wrapped olives need to chill for at least two hours before cooking.


  • 20 pitted olives (green or black)
  • 50 grams flour
  • 30 grams butter
  • 30 grams fresh parmesan cheese (grated)
  • 1 tablespoon cold water


  1. Drain olives and pat dry with a cloth.
  2. Mix flour and butter.
  3. Add cheese and cold water.
  4. Shape dough into a ball and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  5. On a floured surface, roll out dough and cut out small circles.
  6. Place an olive on each circle, and close dough around olive to form a ball shape.
  7. Repeat steps until all dough and olives have been used.
  8. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  9. Preheat oven to 170°C (approximately 350°F).
  10. Bake for about 10 minutes or until golden brown.
