Pastry Twists (Olive Paste & Mediterranean)

Re-sharing this recipe from two years ago.  Pastry Twists are great to serve as finger food. I made over 200 hundred of them for my daughter’s 21st Birthday Party on Saturday. They were a great success amongst all the guests. I find them very easy to make and store until you are ready to serve them. I hope that you enjoy these as much as we do.
