Serves: 5
Total Calories: 438


2 cups (8 ounces) grated Cheddar cheese
1 1/4 cups flour
1 stick butter, melted
about 40 pimiento -stuffed olives, drained


Work the cheese, flour, and butter together to form a smooth dough. Mold about 1 teaspoon of dough around each olive and shape into balls. At this point you can freeze the balls on a cookie sheet, then transfer to a plastic bag for indefinite storage in the freezer. When ready to serve, bake the frozen balls on a cookie sheet in a 400° oven for 15–20 minutes. If you don’t wish to freeze them, just prepare, chill for an hour, and bake as above.
