12 cookies of Christmas – Stilton and Walnut Stars

image

I’m definitely becoming more of a savoury girl lately. Years ago I would have balked at the idea of blue cheese biscuits, but now I just love these – they are very addictive and would make a lovely foodie gift alongside a nice bottle of port 🙂

Stilton and Walnut Stars

100g soft butter
200g plain flour
100g Stilton
50g walnuts, chopped finely
One beaten egg yolk for glazing (I forgot to do this but it’s worth doing – it gives the biscuits a lovely golden shine)

Place the soft butter, stilton, flour and chopped walnuts in a food processor or mixer. Process until the dough is just starting to come together but don’t process beyond that point. Tip the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface and briefly knead to bring together to a soft dough. Wrap in cling film and place in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 200C. Grease and line baking trays.

Roll the dough out on a lightly floured work surface. Cut out star shapes (or any other shape that takes your fancy) and arrange on the lined baking trays. Glaze with the beaten egg yolk. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden and firm.
