Olive Cheese Puffs

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by italiann

When I was a kid growing up in Texas, my best friend's mom used to make these every Christmas. Thank you Schotzie! Wouldn't you know it - I married a guy who hates olives. These tasty little treats can be frozen in single layer. When frozen, store in plastic zipper bag. If frozen, bake at 400ºF for 18-20 minutes.

Been making these for years and they cant be beat. If the cayenne pepper scares you, they are just as good without it. My hubby likes them with black olives, but I still prefer the green!
