 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
   12      oz.           cream cheese -- softened
    1      c.            grated parmesan
    2                    green onions with tops -- minced
      1/3  c.            your favorite pesto sauce
    1      pkg.          frozen puff pastry sheets -- thawed until cold
  enough to roll but still chilled
    1 1/2  c.            whole pitted ripe olives -- wedged or coarsely
   -- chopped
 
 Beat together cream cheese, parmesan, green onions and pesto until well 
 blended.  On lightly floured surface roll half of puff pastry (1 sheet) 
 into 10x6 inch rectangle.  Spread half the cheese mixture over pastry, 
 covering completely.  Scatter half the olives over filling.  Roll 
 lengthwise like jelly roll, starting at long side to make a log.  Repeat 
 with remaining pastry, filling and olives.
 
 Freeze logs until solid ( or up to 2 months).
 
 Heat oven to 375 degrees.  Remove logs from freezer 10-15 min. before 
 baking.  Slice into 1/4 inch thick rounds.  Place 1  1/2 in. apart on 
 non-stick baking sheets.  Bake 10-12 min. or until lightly browned.
 
 Makes about 100.
