This cookie would be great at your Wine and Cheese Party this season. The Blue Cheese gives it the tangy bite needed to pair with wine.
- 1 cup crumbled blue cheese, chilled
- 1/2 cup butter
- pinch of black pepper
- 1 cup flour
- 1/2 cup chopped pistachios, toasted
- 20 dried cranberries, finely chopped
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine the cheese, butter and pepper in a bowl and beat until well combined, but still showing large bits of blue cheese.
With a wooden spoon gently combine the flour into the cheese mixture and add the toasted pistachios and cranberries.
Roll into 1 inch balls and place 1 inch apart on a parchment lined cookie sheet. With your hand, gently flatten until 1/4 inch thick.
Bake about 20-25 minutes until lightly golden on the bottom and edges. Cool on a rack and store in an airtight tin in the refrigerator.
Really quite yummy.
