Baked Cheese Olive Bites

I hesitated to post this recipe because I didn't think anyone would make them. Now that I have posted vintage recipes, I decided to write about this hors d'oeuvres.

My mother made these when I was a child. I think she served them at every New Year's Eve Party as far back as the mid fifties. I use to eat them like candy.

I remember making them myself sometime in the eighties for New Year's Eve. I also had a retro 50's and 60's party not so long ago and served these.
I still love them and I need to make them again soon.
I don't think I need an occasion anymore.

Cheese Olive Bites:
1 C grated sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 C flour
3 TBS butter
green olives ( the recipe doesn't state this, but the olives are pimento stuffed)
It also never mentioned how many it makes...... and I never added it.

That's one of the things I love about those vintage family recipes that were made often, all you needed to know was that you made them often and it didn't matter if anyone else needed to make them.

My mother in law has many recipes that don't even tell how many cups or tablespoons of an ingredient are needed, she just knew!

Mix cheese, flour and butter together to form dough around the olives.
Place them on a cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 10 - 20 minutes.

I started baking them on a Silpat lined cookie sheet.
The next time I make them, I may post the amount that it makes.... or not!

Peace in the Kitchen!
