Blue Cheese Savories

This is a very easy tasty recipe.  Bung everything in the TMX and mix to a thick paste.  Remove, Wrap in baking paper or cling wrap and refrigerate or freeze until required.
Makes 18.
1 cup of plain flour
125 g butter, cubed.
113 g of strong Blue Cheese, cubed
1/2 teaspoon of freshly ground black pepper.
Jam or Quince jelly

Place all ingredients , EXCEPT jam into TMX bowl and mix 20 seconds, speed 4.
Scrape down, mix 5 seconds speed 4.
Remove dough and place on baking paper or cling wrap and form into a sausage about 5 cm in diameter.  This will give about 18 slices.
Keep in fridge or freeze.
When ready to bake, cut off slices, just under 1 cm thick. Place on paper lined baking sheet.
Place a small dab of jam or quince past in centre and bake at 350 20 minutes or until lightly brown.

The strength of the Blue cheese gives the character to these savouries.  I used an imported French cheese. If the Blue doesn’t weigh enough, make up to amount with strong Cheddar and Parmesan.
Could be made GF by replacing plain flour with GF flour.
I cut 12 slices and froze remainder for another time.
