Yield: 50 servings
|2 cups||Grated sharp cheese|
|1 dash||Cayenne or red pepper|
|1 cup||Sifted flour|
|50 smalls||Stuffed green olives.|
Allow butter to soften; blend with cheese, salt, paprika and cayenne.
Stir in flour, mixing well. Mold 1 tsp of this mixture around each olive, covering it completely. Arrange on a baking sheet and chill until firm. Bake in 400 oven for 15 minutes. Serve hot. Makes 50 puffs.
**NOTE** These puffs are so easy to serve at parties as they may be made in advance, frozen on a baking sheet to keep round and stored in a plastic bag in the freezer. Bake as needed.
