Featured Pinch Tips Video
- 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
1Drain olives and pat dry with towel.
2Combine 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.
3If your dough seems to crumble add a Tablespoon or two of milk or water to get it to wrap around the olive better.
4Drop the dough by tablespoons onto wax paper and wrap or mold each piece of dough around an olive, covering completely.
5Bake 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.
