How to Make Olive Cheddar Puffs
- Blend cheese and butter. Stir in flour, salt, and paprika. (Don't be afraid to blend with your hands. That works best!)
- Wrap 1 tsp. dough around each olive, sealing all edges to make a ball.
- Bake at 400F for 15 minutes on greased cookie sheet. Remove from pan, let cool on rack 2-3 minutes, then serve immediately.
- VARIATION: you may use pepper jack cheese instead of cheddar, along with jarred jalapeno slices instead of olives for a spicy, fun alternative!
