"I always make these for pot lucks, or when I need an appetizer for a special occasion... They are a big hit during the holidays, to munch on before dinner, and my whole family loves them! If you don't like black olives, puree them in the blender and add them to the cream cheese mix and no one will ever know they are in there, but they add lots of flavor, so don't omit them! The veggies can be cut up the night before, and dough can be baked ahead and covered with plastic wrap, so assembling them can be quick the day you serve them. "
