Another one from Delia Smith. Perfect for a cocktail party. I would think any blue cheese could be substituted for the Stilton, but it's better to have the real thing. I must add my two cents and say that true English Stilton is much creamier and more flavorful than what you get in the states, although stateside Stilton will get the job done. These can be served hot or warm, or they can be made in advance and briefly reheated before serving. They can also be frozen. Cooking time does not include chilling time.
- 100 g flour
- 100 g unsalted butter, chilled and cubed
- 100 g Stilton cheese, crumbled
- 1 egg, beaten
- 75 g walnuts, chopped
- Put the flour, butter and Stilton in a food processor and mix briefly to form a smooth dough. You may also knead all the ingredients together by hand. Wrap and chill for 1 hour or until firm.
- Lightly grease some baking sheets.
- Roll out the dough to 1/4 inch thick. Cut into 2 inch squares, then cut the squares in half diagonally to make triangles.
- Place on the baking sheets and chill for 10 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 190C/375°F.
- Brush with the beaten egg and sprinkle with chopped walnuts.
- Bake 5-7 minutes, or until golden.
- Transfer to wire rack to cool.
