Ingredients

Nutrition
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (if using spread, 1/2 a small jar spread like Kraft Old English) or 2 12 ounces cheese spread (if using spread, 1/2 a small jar spread like Kraft Old English)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, room temperature
  • 12 cup flour
  • 14 teaspoon cayenne
  • 12 garlic-stuffed olives

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350. Drain olives and pat dry.
  2. 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).
  3. 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. Roll it between your palms to smooth surface, if you like.
  4. Bake 15 - 20 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
