These little cream cheese-filled pecan bites are the perfect combination of creamy and crunchy. You'll have a hard time stopping with just one bite. If you like these bite-sized appetizers, try these cream cheese filled snacks.
3 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup finely chopped pimiento-stuffed Spanish olives
1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives
1/4 teaspoon pepper
80 large toasted pecan halves
How to Make It
Stir together cream cheese, olives, chives, and pepper. Spread onto 40 large toasted pecan halves; top with 40 large toasted pecan halves, forming sandwiches.
This is a rich, tasty treat which is a hit with slightly sophisticated or open-minded palates. I always have the ingredients on hand and it is quick. I think the next time I make them I may candy or spice the pecans a bit.
I've made these several times, and they always get eaten up. I omitted a second pecan, though, as it made one bite a little too much. I just piped the spread on one pecan and served them "open-faced." Delish!
