    This recipe sounds delicious but am I crazy or does the photo look like something fried? I want to try this since I love olives and blue cheese.

    OMG. These are SO fabulous. With my new mixer, they were fairly easy. I did add about 1/2 tsp Tabasco, because no self-respecting Southerner would make a cheese straw or cracker without some bite. Frankly, it could have used a full 1 tsp. To answer Andreakat below, they are NOT fried; they are baked. With all the (real) butter and cheese they are hardly fat-free. But they are SO tasty! I didn't have a crescent moon cutter, just a star, but they could be globs and they'd be just as good! Andrea, I love olives, too. Somewhere I have a recipe for a similar type dough that you wrap around a whole olive and bake. Wonderful!
