Ingredients

24
pimento stuffed olives
1 c
sharp cheddar cheese, finely grated (don't use bagged cheese)
2 Tbsp
unsalted butter, softened
1/2 c
all purpose flour
1/8 tsp
cayenne pepper

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Drain olives and pat dry with towel.
2
Combine cheese and butter in a bowl. Add flour and cayenne and blend until well mixed. I do finely shred my cheddar cheese from a block of cheese. I don't use the pre-shredded cheese.
3
If your dough seems to crumble add a Tablespoon or two of milk or water to get it to wrap around the olive better.
4
Drop the dough by tablespoons onto wax paper and wrap or mold each piece of dough around an olive, covering completely.
5
Bake the wrapped olives on a baking sheet in the center rack of a preheated 400 degree oven for 15 mintues or until golden brown. Serve warm.
