Dana Joy Altman ( http://www.realfoodrehab.com ) says: When I had my first grown-up party, this is the appetizer I served. It comes from my mom, who served these when I was growing up. It reminds me of the 70's and her glamorous cocktail parties. It's the perfect little bit to serve with a glass of chilled wine.
5 oz (140 g) cheddar cheese, grated
1 cup (120 g) all purpose flour, plus 2 tsp if needed
½ tsp (2½ mL) salt
¼ cup (60 g) butter, chilled and cut into 1/4" (6 mm) pieces
2 8-oz (230 g) jars of small green Manzanilla olives stuffed with pimentos (the Goya brand at your local Mexican market are great and inexpensive)
Combine cheese, flour, salt and butter in a food processor and pulse, adding teaspoons of ice water until it forms a firm dough. Remove, form into a disc and chill until ready to use.
Flour a work surface and, with floured hands, roll olives in enough dough to cover. Pinch dough around the olive, then roll in between your hands until each ball is uniform. Place on a buttered sheet pan, spaced ½" (13 mm) apart. Bake for 10-15 minutes until golden.
Don’t worry, you’ll only have to do this once and then you’re free to rate all the videos on our site.
