A Simple List of Ingredients:
1. Pitted Olives
2. Grated Cheddar Cheese
3. Plain Flour
4. Unsalted Butter
6. Iced Water
Bismillah, let’s begin!
Place 5 ounces grated Cheddar cheese into a food processor.
Add 8 ounces plain flour.
Add 1/2 teaspoon salt.
And, add 2 ounces chilled and cubed unsalted butter.
Pulse the mixture in the food processor until combined.
Add iced water to the dough, a teaspoon at a time ..
.. until a firm dough forms.
Bring the dough together with your hands, and place onto a sheet of clingfilm.
Wrap the dough in the clingfilm, and chill in the fridge until you are ready to use it.
When you want to bake, remove the dough from the fridge, and take a few handfuls of pitted olives (without the stone).
To make one olive puff, take a pinch of dough ..
.. place an olive on top of the dough ..
.. and wrap and roll the dough around the olive.
Carry on making the olive puffs and place them onto a greased and lined baking tray.
Bake the Olive Cheese Puffs in a preheated oven at Gas Mark 5 for 10-15 minutes until golden brown.
