pinch tips: How to Grate Cheese for Easy Clean Up


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

Drain olives and pat dry with towel.
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.
If your dough seems to crumble add a Tablespoon or two of milk or water to get it to wrap around the olive better.
Drop the dough by tablespoons onto wax paper and wrap or mold each piece of dough around an olive, covering completely.
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.
