10min.chef's picture
Olive-Cheese Tidbits is a dish of flavored green olives. I love the bake-n-serve varieties and this one tops my list. Try the Olive-Cheese Tidbits as an appetizer for dinner.
Ingredients
  Shredded sharp cheddar cheese 8 Ounce
  Baking powder 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Butter 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  All purpose flour 1 1⁄4 Cup (20 tbs)
  Pimento stuffed green olives 24
Directions

In a medium mixing bowl, combine cheese, flour and baking powder; mix on medium speed of electric mixer until well blended.
Stir in butter; mix until all ingredients are moistened and dough forms.
Pinch off a small piece of dough, wrap it completely around an olive, put on ungreased baking sheet.
Repeat with remaining dough and olives.
Bake in a preheated 400-degree oven 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden brown.
Serve hot.
Note: Dough-wrapped olives can be frozen and baked later.
