This peppery appetizer is a foavorite of mine.  It sounds complicated, but it truly is easy to prepare ahead of time and then bake right before the guests arrrive.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2-3 teaspoon cracked black pepper
  • 8 ounces blue cheese crumbles
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 2 egg yolks, slightly beaten

    Directions

    • In a medium bowl, combine flour and pepper.  Cut in cheese a softened butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.  Stir in walnuts and egg yolks.  Form mixture into a ball; kneed until well mixed.  *I added more softened butter in order to get it to come to a dough consistency*  Divide dough in half.  Shape each half into a 9 inch log.  If desired, flatten the sides, making a square log/  Wrap and chill for at least 3 hours
    • Preheat oven to 425*.  Cut logs into 1/4 inch slices.  Place one inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet.  Bake for 8-10 minutes or until bottoms and edges are golden.  Transfer to a wire rack.  Serve warm or at room temperature.  Store in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator for up to one week.
