Make the Olive Bread Dough
To start make sure you follow the steps in the cookbook to make the Olive Bread recipe. Once you make the dough, cover it with a towel or wrap it in a mat to rest.
Olive Stick Filling
Make the filling. Be sure to cook it as per instructions as it builds the flavour. Once cooked, strain it to get rid of as much liquid as possible. Now you need to set up your work space. Set the dough to one side. Have knife or roller ready. I use a pizza cutter to cut the dough on a chopping board. Put filling aside along with a little bowl of flour and some sesame seeds. Make sure you use a wet tea towel with the sesame seeds on top or they won’t stick to the dough as well.
Time to create you olive sticks
First, roll out the dough twice in the pasta maker going thinner each time and careful not to rip the dough. Slice the dough up. Add a little of the olive mixture to a length of dough, wrap up and enclose well. Roll the stick in sesame seeds ensuring to cover it all and set on a tray to cook.
Now try not to eat them all as soon as they come out of the oven! I hope you enjoy my family recipe. Be sure to let me know what you think.
