Olive Cheddar Balls

It’s time to start making Christmas hors d’oeuvres around here… and I’m kicking it off with one of my Godmother’s recipes.  These are a great appetizer to have around for the holidays since they can easily be made ahead of time and frozen until you need them. 

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/4 lb. Cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • Approximately 30 Pimento olives

HOW TO MAKE IT

  • Combine all of the dry ingredients and blend well
  • Mix together the softened butter and grated cheese and then pour in the dry ingredients
  • Mix the dough together with your hands; if it seems too dry and crumbly, put it in the microwave for about 30 seconds to soften the mixture up
  • Take a spoonful of dough into your hand and roll it into a ball and then flatten it out
  • Place the olive in the center of the dough and wrap the dough around it
  • Round the dough ball out by rolling it in between your palms until it’s a perfect sphere
  • Bake on a greased baking sheet at 350°F for approximately 20 minutes or until the dough looks crackled and cooked and the edges are slightly browned
