Savory Blue Cheese Crackers

Makes 30 crackers
Time 2 hr 25 min
These crackers are an excellent addition to any cheese plate. They may be made ahead and frozen. Just pop them into the oven for a few minutes before serving.
Ingredients
  • 1/2 pound double or triple cream blue cheese, such as Saga
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter softened
  • 1 tablespoon powdered mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse sea salt
Method

Scrape rind off cheese and remove any hard parts. In a bowl, blend butter and cheese until smooth and creamy. Add mustard, cayenne and flours and mix together to form a dough that can be easily shaped. Form dough into two 1 1/2-inch wide rolls. Wrap in waxed paper and chill for at least 2 hours.

Preheat the oven to 425°F. Cut each roll of dough into approximately 15 slices, sprinkle with salt, and bake on ungreased baking sheets for 12 to 15 minutes. Set aside to let cool, then serve.
