Green Olive Cheese Puffs - Appetizers

I remember my mom making these at the holidays...oh so yummy!


2 cups shredded sharp natural Cheddar cheese (8 ounces)
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
48 small pimiento-stuffed olives, drained and patted dry

Stir together cheese and flour in large bowl. Stir in butter thoroughly. (If dough seems dry, work with hands.)
Mold 1 teaspoon dough around each olive; shape into ball. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour but no longer than 24 hours.

Heat oven to 400ºF. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until light brown. Makes 4 dozen appetizers
