Cheese Blossoms

Comment on this recipe

These cheese treats melt in your mouth and look very attractive on a platter.

Ingredients

2 cups (8 ounces) shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
2 tablespoons sesame seed, toasted
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
3 ounces (1/2 of 6-ounce package) pasteurized process cheese food with garlic
Sliced pimiento-stuffed green olives for garnish

Instructions

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Combine first five ingredients in a large bowl. Knead with hands, shaping dough into a smooth ball. Cover and refrigerate one hour. Shape dough into 3/4-inch balls and place on greased baking sheets. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until light brown. Cool on wire rack. In a small bowl, blend cream cheese and garlic cheese until smooth; refrigerate 1 hour. Spoon cheese mixture into a pastry bag fitted with a small star tip. Pipe cheese onto biscuits just before serving. Garnish each cheese blossom with 1 slice of olive. Makes about 3 dozen cheese blossoms.
