Remove pits from the olives if necessary and chop the olives. Put the olives, goat cheese, cream cheese, green onion, garlic and Tabasco sauce in a blender or food processor or use an electric mixer to blend. Use cookie cutter to cut out shapes in the bread. Do not use crusts. Cut out the bread shapes and spread the goat cheese/olive mixture on one side of bread. Top with another bread cutout. The filling should spill out the sides enough that chopped parsley will outline the shape when you dip them. Dip the edge of the sandwiches in the minced parsley. The olive mixture can be made ahead. Bring to room temperature before using. The bread can be cut out and stored overnight in an airtight container.
This is a great holiday tea or party item. It can be used for any occasion or served as a spread. If these ingredients don’t appeal to you, use a chicken salad with finely chopped ingredients or some other filling. Garnish the plate with fresh greenery and cranberries during the holidays. To easily remove pits from olives, place them on a work surface and roll over them with a rolling pin, then pick out the pits.
