- 2 C grated sharp cheddar cheese
- 1 stick unsalted butter (softened)
- 1 1/4 C all purpose flour
- 1 tsp Tabasco sauce
- 1/2 tsp paprika
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 jar pimiento-stuffed green olives (drained)
Blend cheese and butter in a mixing bowl. Add the flour, Tabasco, paprika, and salt and form into a ball. Flatten out a walnut-sized amount of dough. Take a single olive and wrap it with the dough, rolling it into a ball.
Form as many balls as the dough will allow and place them on a parchment lined baking tray. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 15 minutes. Serve warm.
Uncooked balls will freeze well.
