“Turn simple sandwiches into an impressive Halloween spread. We like to serve these with hot pumpkin or squash soup.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 8 slices pumpernickel bread
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 12 cup pimento stuffed olive
  • 4 pimento stuffed olives


  1. Slice each of the 4 olives in half. Set aside.
  2. Spread 1 oz cream cheese on 4 of the slices of pumpernickel.
  3. Chop remaining olives and divide evenly, spreading over top of the 4 cream cheese-topped slices.
  4. Top 4 sandwiches with remaining slices. Using a knife or large cookie cutter, cut each into a pumpkin shape.
  5. Use small dots of cream cheese to attach eyes of reserved sliced olives.
  6. VARIATION: Following directions above, make pumpkin-shaped peanut butter & jelly sandwiches. Use dots of peanut butter to attach raisins for eyes and mouth.
  7. Serve with slices of pumpkin bread cut into spooky shapes with cookie cutters, if desired.
