Spinach-Cheese Balls

Here's another goody I made for New Year's that I'm just now getting around to posting.  Even people that don't like spinach found themselves liking these snackable balls of yum. 

Spinach-Cheese Balls

3/4 cup flour
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp salt
2 1/2 tsp butter
1 10-oz box of frozen spinach (or homegrown equivalent), thawed and squeezed to drain
2 cups mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 egg
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp dried basil
1/2 tsp dried majoram
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/4 tsp dried sage
1 cup tomato sauce, for dipping

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Grease baking sheet.  In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt.  Cut in butter until it resembles fine crumbs.  Mix in remaining ingredients except tomato sauce, using clean hands if necessary to blend well.  Form into 1-inch balls and place on baking sheet.  Bake about 15 minutes, or until golden brown.  Immediately remove from baking sheet.  Serve with tomato sauce.
