Cheese Appetisers, originally published in the Mirro Cooky Press instruction and recipe booklet c1950 (I figured I’d spell appetisers both ways to keep everyone happy :P)
- Cream cheese, at least 250gm or 8 1/2oz
- Crackers or toast cut into fancy shapes
- Optional decorations – food colouring
- stuffed olives
Mix the cream cheese until it’s soft. Add a few drops of food colouring if you like.
Put the cheese into your cookie press and add the disc of your choice.
Press the cheese shapes onto a baking tray that is not non-stick and sprinkle with paprika.
Put in the fridge for a couple of hours to set.
Using a flexible knife, remove the cheese shapes from the tray (see the video for the technique) and put each one on a cracker.
Garnish with a slice of stuffed olive or dried fruit.
