SAVOURY BLUE CHEESE BITES

SAVOURY BLUE CHEESE BITES

This post is for you Elizabeth of Sail Away Girl

(check out her site for lots of sail-related tips & tricks)

I have no oven in our little chalet on the water

so it would be unlikely that I would make these cocktail ‘cookies’ onboard…

well maybe, it I get bored some day…

Ha! boredom on a boat? Craziness!

Anyway, a while back I posted a recipe for easy Fig Jam

because we were having a little dinner party (land-based)
and I wanted to make some nibbles for our guests to enjoy
while dinner was cooking.
Elizabeth, you asked for my recipe so here it is….
Enjoy!!
SAVOURY BLUE CHEESE BITES
 
inspired by Food 52
1 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup butter at room temperature
4 oz blue cheese, crumbled
several grinds of black pepper
3 tbsp fig jam
Heat oven to 350 °
Mix flour, butter, cheese and pepper
until mixture comes together.
On a lightly floured surface dump the dough and knead a few times.
Between 2 sheets of parchement paper roll out dough to about 1/8″ thickness.
Cut little 1″ circles and place on parchment lined baking sheet.
Make a small indentation in each (I used my baby finger knuckle)
and drop in a small portion of fig jam.
Bake for 10 – 12 minutes until jam is bubbly and pastry is lightly browned.
Cool on wire rack.
These can be made a day ahead
and kept in an air-tight container.
They also freeze very well
which is my usual trick for hiding them out of sight
so we don’t consume them all at once.
