Blue Cheese Cookies with Pistachios

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.
