How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Drain olives and pat dry.
  • Thoroughly combine cheese and butter. Add flour and cayenne, stirring to fully mix. When thoroughly combined but crumbly, work mixture together with your fingers to form dough (no need to knead–it will stick right together).
  • Roll a tablespoon-sized clump of dough into a ball.
  • Press it flat between the palms of your hands.
  • Put an olive in the center and press dough around sides to enclose. Simply close your hand around the olive and the dough will enclose most of it.
  • Then just push the edges together to cover the olive.
  • Roll it between your palms to smooth surface, if you like.
  • Bake 15-20 minutes
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.

    I was browsing thru the appetizers looking for a recipe to take to a Red Hat tea and noticed a bunch of recipes that were rated really low, and decided to check...what a bummer! This recipe is really a good recipe and I am sorry that someone is lowballing you! It's a shi**y thing to do!
