Ingredients

1 cup (4 ounces) crumbled blue cheese, at room temperature
1/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup flour
1 cup walnut pieces, finely chopped

Instructions

In small mixing bowl, combine cheese and butter. Cream until fluffy. Mix in flour and walnuts and blend thoroughly. Form into a log about 2-inches in diameter and 12-inches long. Wrap in wax paper; chill until firm, about 1 hour. Cut log into slices 1/4-inch thick. Place 1/2-inch apart on baking sheets. Bake in 375 degrees oven 12 to 14 minutes, just until bottoms are lightly browned. Transfer to racks to cool. Store in airtight container. Serve with fresh fruit and a selection of cheese.
