Cream Cheese
Pimento Olives

Directions:
Directions:
Years ago there was only hard Philadelphia Cream Cheese, so you had to let the cream cheese get room temperature. You added a little milk and mashed the cream cheese with a fork till you could spread it. Then you chopped up the pimento olives and mixed them with the cream cheese. Thatís it. Today it is a lot easier with whipped and soft cream cheese. So make it the old fashioned way or use one of the new softer cream cheeses.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Okay, so Iím not Martha Stewart, but I love this sandwich. I am always surprised that so few people know of this combination. No, this is not a recipe from Aunt Olive, but since she was one of the famous cooks of our family I am naming it in her honor. As the tuna fish salad recipe that I have entered, this is one of my favorite sandwiches from childhood. My mother made this many times and I was always happy when she did make it.

By the way, this makes an excellent tea sandwich. Just trim off the crusts and cut into small pieces. My sister Eunice Rambo Smith, suggested that I share this gourmet delight.
