Rye Party Puffs
YIELD: 4 1/2 dozen

1 cup water
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup rye flour
2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 eggs
caraway seeds

2 packages (8ounces each) cream cheese, softened
2 packages (2 1/2 ounces each) thinly sliced cooked corned beef, chopped
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup sour cream
2 Tablespoons minced chives
2 Tablespoons diced onion
1 teaspoon spicy brown or horseradish mustard
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
10 small stuffed olives, chopped

In a saucepan over medium heat, bring water and butter to a boil.
Add flours, parsley, garlic powder and salt all at once; stir until
a smooth ball forms. Remove from the heat; let stand for 5 minutes.
Beat in eggs, one at a time. Beat until smooth.

Drop batter by rounded teaspoonfuls 2" apart onto greased baking
sheets. Sprinkle with caraway. Bake at 400 degrees for 18-20
minutes or until golden. Remove to wire racks.

Immediately cut a slit in each puff to allow steam to escape; cool.
In a mixing bowl, combine the first eight filling ingredients; mix
well. Stir in olives. Split puffs; add filling. Refrigerate.

I've made this recipe for several years now and just love it. Howevver, if you make the whole filling recipe, half will go to waste. Just use one package of cream cheese and one package of the beef, and halve the other ingredients, too. The recipe I got for these didn't include olives. If it had, I wouldn't have made them. I've never met an olive I liked. Really a good appetizer, and looks like you slaved all day. I add the carraway seed to the puff ingredients -- otherwise they fall all over the place (I use about 2 T )

My family loves anything made with sauerkraut. I revised this recipe by cutting the original ingredients in half and then added 2 pkgs. wafer type corn beef, 1 can sauerkraut (drained well, and 1 cup shredded swiss cheese. They loved it!!
