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
  • paprika
  • ┬áMethod

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.
