Appetizers... Dips & Spreads


    Cheese-Olive Puffs

    These puffs may be made in advance, frozen on a cookie sheet to keep round, and stored in a plastic bag in the freezer. Bake as needed.

    1/2 cup butter
    2 cups grated sharp cheese
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon paprika
    Dash of ground red pepper
    1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
    50 small stuffed green olives

    Allow butter to soften. Blend butter with cheese, salt, paprika and red pepper. Stir in flour, mixing well. Mold 1 teaspoon of the mixture around each olive, covering it completely. Arrange on a baking sheet and chill until firm. Bake at 400 degrees F for 15 minutes.

    Serve hot.

    Makes 50 puffs.
