- 8 oz crumbled blue cheese, softened
- ½ cup butter, softened
- 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1/3 cup toasted and ground walnuts
- 1 egg white, beaten
- variety of fresh herb sprigs (rosemary, thyme, sage)
Beat cheese and butter at medium speed until creamy. Add flour and nuts; beat until blended. Shape dough into two eight-inch logs. Wrap logs in wax paper and chill two hours or until firm. Cut into ¼-inch thick slices and place on lightly greased baking sheets. Brush lightly with the beaten egg white. Press the herb sprigs firmly into each slice. Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes or until golden. Cool for one minute on the baking sheets. Remove to wire racks to cool completely.
