Green Olive Spread Extraordinaire

Olive spread was a sure hit in the leader snack area at our church’s Vacation Bible School earlier this month.  The lady who made the spread shared her recipe with me.

The cream cheese was sort of an odd amount, so I changed the recipe to accommodate an 8-ounce block.  I adjusted the pecans, too, because you can never have too many pecans with cream cheese.  Right?

Handy Builder Dad (HBD) loves green olives, so I took this spread to share with him over Father’s Day weekend.

He wanted the address for the lady who gave me her recipe so he could send her a thank-you note.  Haha!  She would be so happy about that!
