The Food Corner

I am a fan of strong tasting cheese (and they often have a strong smell to boot). At one time, our family got to enjoy blue cheese while visiting the South of France. So, this week’s recipe uses blue cheese to create a kind of appetizer biscuit. So here we go with Blue Cheese and Waltnut wafers.

Blue Cheese and Walnut Wafers

¼ pound of Blue Cheese at room temperature
9 tablespoons of butter also at room temperature
1 ½ cup of all-purpose flour
½ cup walnuts, finely chopped

1. Combine the cheese, butter and flour and form into a ball.
2. Stir in a third of a cup of walnut pieces
3. Divide in half and make a roll an inch in diameter.
4. Chill until firm.
5. Cut into ¼ inch slices and top with additional walnut pieces.
6. Bake on an ungreased cookie sheet until golden, about 12-15 minutes at 350F.

As mentioned in previous recipes, if you have a “bubble” of folks over, just double or triple the recipe. By the way, you might try these with a dab of hummus or tzatziki. Yummy!

Please note that there was an omission in our Nova Scotia Brown Bread Recipe. Please add 4 to 5 cups of all-purpose flour to the ingredients list (my bad and thanks to readers for setting me straight…). If you prefer, just mail me and I will send you the complete recipe.

My mail, as always, is [email protected]. See you next week…
