cheese olive nuggets

1/4 pound Sharp Cracker Barrel Cheese

1/4 cup unsalted butter

3/4 cup plain flour

1/8 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon paprika

Small jar spanish olives, pimento stuffed

Blend cheese and butter; sift flour, salt and paprika and mix with cheese/butter mixture to make a dough.  Pull a marble size bit of dough and flatten in the palm of your hand.  Shape around the olive so it forms a ball.  Bake on ungreased cookie sheet at 400 degrees for 12-15 minutes.  Can be kept in freezer, baked or unbaked, to pull out as an appetizer for unexpected guests.  Also, makes  a wonderful hostess gift either boxed or in tins.
