Olives en Croute

2 cups (8 ounces) grated Cheddar cheese
1-1/4 cups flour
1 stick butter, melted
About 40 pimiento-stuffed olives, drained

Work the cheese, flour and butter together to form smooth dough. Mold about 1 teaspoon of dough around each olive and shape into balls. At this point you can freeze the balls on a cookie sheet, then transfer to a plastic bag for indefinite storage in the freeze.

When ready to serve, bake the frozen balls on a cookie sheet in a 400-degree oven for 15-20 minutes. If you don't wish to freeze them, just prepare, chill for an hour, and bake as above.
