BLUE CHEESE-WALNUT WAFERS

I have listed this recipe in my Quick Fix files because it only takes minutes to put together and only 12 minutes to bake.  The dough does, however, have to chill for an hour.  Remember that when planning to make this appetizer!

1 pkg (4-oz) blue cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
couple dashes of salt
1/3 cup finely chopped walnuts

Place the blue cheese, butter, flour, and salt into a food processor and process until blended.  Scrape down the sides, once during processing.  This mixture will be sticky.  Transfer the mixture to a bowl and stir in the chopped walnuts until well blended.  Divide the mixture in half.  Shape each half into an 8-inch long log.  Wrap in heavy-duty plastic wrap and chill for 1 hour or until firm.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Remove dough from refrigerator and slice each log into 1/4-inch slices.  Place the slices on ungreased cookie sheets and bake at 350 degrees for approximately 12 minutes until lightly browned.  Remove from oven and cool on wire racks.

Store in an airtight container for up to 1 week.

Yield: approximately 54 wafers
