Simple, easy, delicious, pairs perfectly with red wine; need I say more?

Oh, and you can freeze the dough to take out, slice and bake whenever you feel like it.


1/2 cup butter, room temp

1 cup crumbled gorgonzola (or other blue cheese of your choice)

1 cup flour (I think you could do half spelt, half all purpose here, though I tried it with all AP. Just depends on how rich you want it)

1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts (again, feel free to mix it up with the nuts)

1. Beat butter and cheese together until well blended, but lumps of cheese are good, so don’t go for perfectly smooth. Stir in flour and nuts.

2. Shape into a log, then wrap in plastic and put in fridge for an hour or so to firm up, or place log in a ziploc and freeze it.

3. Slice log into 1/4 inch slices and bake on parchment lined cookie sheets at 350 for 10 minutes or until the bottom edge of the cookies are just starting to turn golden. If you have frozen the log, you are going to want to thaw it a bit before slicing.
