1 C sharp cheddar cheese, grated (I used white cheddar, but orange would probably make them look nicer)
3 tbsp cold butter, cut into cubes
1/2 C flour
1/2 tsp paprika
15 large green olives stuffed with pimentos, dry (sometimes called "mammoth" or "queen")
1. In the bowl of a food processor pulse the flour and paprika. Add the cold butter and cheese and pulse until it resembles rough crumbs (like making a pie dough).
2. Put the mixture into a bowl, cover and place in the fridge for at least 1 hour.
3. Transfer mixture onto a counter and press together to make the dough (do not overwork). Roll out dough to 1/4-inch thick. Use a small cup or 2-inch wide circle cookie cutter to cut rounds. Wrap each round around 1 olive (you may have to work the dough around the olive a bit). Freeze the balls on a cookie sheet.
4. Bake from frozen for about 22 minutes on 400 degrees. Let cool for 5 minutes before removing from the baking sheet. Remove from baking sheet and cool another 2 minutes before serving.
