OLIVE BALLS

Our family gathered for the final, post Thanksgiving Football game between Arkansas and LSU. I have learned over the years that it inevitably turns into an emotionally charged, quietly passionate few hours, with different family members supporting opposite teams. I'm not personally vested in what is on the screen, but tend to focus on the food while attempting to ignore the mounting hostilities in the room - the guacamole, queso, corn chips and bloody mary's we had this year were delicious, and I brought these Olive Balls as my quick contribution to the appetizers

OLIVE BALLS


1/4 pound sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
stuffed green olives

Heat oven to 400F.
Blend cheese and butter together. Mix in flour, salt and cayenne pepper. Shape 2 teaspoons of dough around each olive. Place on a baking sheet. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes.
Enjoy!
