1/2 cup soft butter
1 cup sifted flour
1 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. salt (optional)
1/4 tsp. Tabasco sauce
36 stuffed green olives
Blend cheese and butter well; stir in flour, paprika, salt, and Tabasco. Drain olives and cover each with dough, forming round balls. Freeze until firm.
Place balls on baking sheet, well separated. Bake without defrosting in a hot oven (400) for 15 minutes.
