    The recipe says to add the olive oil and other ingredients after baking the cheese. The video shows the olive oil etc being added to the cheese before baking. Please correct the recipe accordingly.

    Nice, fast appetizer. Also, try garnishing with chopped fine green olives. I think it's better to grind on the pink pepper corns, some can be pretty hard, rather than take a chance someone breaks a tooth.
