From 1917: Put one-half pound of American cream cheese through a food chopper. Then put ¼ of a small onion, 1 green pepper, from which the seeds and stem have been removed, ½ red pepper, similarly treated through the food chopper. Mix the peppers and the onion with the cheese, add salt and pepper to taste. Add just enough olive oil to make the mixture of a creamy consistency to spread. Spread between thin slices of buttered bread. Places the slices together, trim off the crusts and cut into oblongs or diamond shapes. This cheese mixture, if put into a jar and covered well, will keep indefinitely, and makes a splendid sandwich paste.
