I have been making a version of this recipe for years, and it is always a hit at parties. My recipe calls for 2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar,
1 1/4 cups flour, 1 stick margarine or butter (melted), and about 36 pimiento-stuffed green olives (drain and pat dry with a paper towel; amt. of olives used will vary depending on how much dough you wrap around each). I don't use any cayenne. Mix the cheese and flour, then mix in the margarine, working the dough with your hands if it seems dry. Mold approx. 1 tsp. dough around each olive; refrigerate wrapped olives at least 1 hour before baking. (I often refrigerate overnight.) Bake @ 400 20 minutes or until golden. I promise you, everyone will love these - I have never taken them to a party or shower without requests for the recipe, and people specifically ask me to bring them to events! They've even converted a few former olive-haters... :-)
