These little dough-wrapped olives become melt-in-your mouth after 15 minutes in the oven--thanks to grated cheddar and butter.
INGREDIENTS (for 7 servings):
- 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1 (6 ounce) can black olives, drained
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a baking sheet.
Mix the cheese, butter, flour, and paprika together using an electric mixer or food processor. Take tablespoon-size pieces of the dough and one olive per tablespoon of dough. Roll the dough around the olive, so that the olive in completely enclosed in the center of the dough. Arrange the olive and cheese balls on the prepared baking sheet.
Bake for 15 minutes.
