    **Surprise Cheese Bites**

    2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, grated
    1 stick butter, softened
    1 cup flour
    1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
    1/2 tsp dry mustard (optional)
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 tsp paprika
    Pimento stuffed olives or pecan halves

    Sift dry ingredients together. Cream softened butter and cheese; add dry ingredients, blending well.

    Drain olives and blot dry with paper towels.

    Take about 1 teaspoon of dough and flatten. Put an olive or pecan in the middle and wrap dough around it, rolling to make a ball.

    Put tray of balls in freezer until firm, then pop into Ziploc bags. Bake (frozen) at 400 for 15 minutes.

    Great to keep on hand for surprise company or as a do-ahead appetizer for a party.
