“These delightful little finger foods will have your guests begging for the recipe; that is how I got it! Perfect for a cocktail party. Make sure you allow enough time for the olives to drain really well, so they don't come out soggy.”

Directions

  1. Well before you plan to serve, drain olives in colander.
  2. Mix flour and cayenne together.
  3. Blend butter and cheese together with a fork.
  4. Blend in flour mixture (I used a pastry blender, or you could use two knives).
  5. Add cold water, a teaspoon or so at a time, until a dough forms.
  6. Wrap a tablespoon or so of dough around each olive, and roll between palms; place on a cookie sheet.
  7. Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for about 15 to 20 minutes, until golden brown.
  8. Serve warm.
  9. Hint: You can make these ahead according to the recipe and freeze. To reheat: place frozen olives on cookie sheet and bake about 10 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
