Olive Cheese Bites

Circle B Kitchen

After making these over the years, I've discovered that you can't use a sharp cheddar cheese; it's gotta be a mild or medium cheddar. Sharp cheddar is too dry. Mild or medium cheddars tend to be more creamy which you need to create a moist dough.

½ c flour

1 ¼ cup grated cheddar

1/8 t dry mustard (optional)

3 tsp milk

3 T melted butter

1/8 tsp salt

35-40 pitted green olives such as manzanilla

Mix all of the ingredients together (except the olives). Dry the olives as best you can and mold a rounded teaspoon of the dough around each olive. Bake on a cookie sheet at 400 degrees for 12-13 min. Serve warm
