Blue Cheese Appetizer Shortbread with Fruit Chutney


Mix flour, cornstarch, salt and pepper in a small bowl; set aside. 

Combine Blue Cheese and butter in a food processor and process until smooth and creamy. Add flour mixture and pulse just until combined. Using your hands press the dough until it holds together; shape into a 1” round by 10” long log. Roll log into ground walnuts. Wrap with plastic wrap and refrigerate for one hour or overnight. 

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). 

Remove dough from refrigerator and cut into 1/8” slices. Place on a parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 12 minutes. 

Keep a careful eye while baking, as nuts tend to burn. Remove from oven and allow to cool. 

Serve with prepared chutney.
