Cheesy Olive Appetizers

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 cup Delizia Butter Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1 cup sifted all purpose flour and 1 tsp paprika
1 (6 oz.) can black olives, pitted, drained

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a baking sheet. Mix the cheese, butter oil, flour, and paprika together using an electric mixer or food processor. Take tablespoon size pieces of the dough and one olive per tbsp of dough. Roll the dough around the olive so that the olive is completely enclosed in the center of the dough. Arrange the olive and cheese balls on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes.
