Aunt Joan's Olive Cheese Puffs

I had an Aunt that I never met but am happy to see that Hi-Ho had a recipe from her. So in honor of another woman who remains only in memory, here are my Aunt Joan's Olive Cheese Puffs.

24 medium sized stuffed green olives
1 cup  natural sharp cheddar cheese, grated (HiHo wrote in "Hay Days Cotswald)
1/4 cup soft butter or margarine
1/2 cup sifted all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon paprika
dash of Worcestershire

  1. 4 or 5 hours ahead, blend cheese with butter. Stir in flour, salt, and paprika, mixing well. Mold 1 teaspoon of the dough around each olive, covering it completely. Arrange on un-greased baking sheet and refrigerate.
  2.  30 minutes before serving, preheat oven 400 degrees.
  3. Bake puffs for 10 to 15 minutes, and serve warm or cold.

1 cup of cheese or 1 pound of cheese?
