   Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease cookie sheet. In
   med. saucepan, heat water, salt and margarine to
   boiling. Add flour and sherry, stirring constantly,
   until mixture forms ball and leaves sides of pan.
   Remove from heat; blend in 1/4 cup cheese spread. Add
   eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
   Mixture will be smooth and glossy. Drop dough by
   teaspoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheet. Bake at 400
   degrees F for 15-20 mins. until puffed and golden
   brown. Remove from cookie sheets. Cool slightly; make
   small slit in side of puffs to release steam and
   prevent sogginess. Cool completely.
   
   In small bowl, combine remaining cheese spread, olives
   and sherry; blend until smooth and fluffy. Slit puffs;
   remove any soft filaments of dough. Fill with scant
   teaspoonfuls of cheese mixture. Makes 18 appetizer
   puffs.
   
   A wonderful holiday appetizer including a rich cheese
   puff pastry.
