Recipe from


Ingredients

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons butter, softened
1/4 cup plus 3 tablespoons crumbled blue cheese
1 egg yolk
1/2 teaspoons dried parsley
1/4 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons whipping cream
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Preparation

Mix all ingredients together; let rest 30 minutes.

Roll dough out onto a floured surface to about 1/8-inch thickness. Use your favorite spring cookie cutter shapes (flowers, teacups, wedding bells) to cut out the crackers.

Place on ungreased baking sheets; bake at 400° for 8 to 10 minutes or just until golden. Cool completely on baking sheets. Carefully remove the delicate crackers when cool.

 

Note:

Snap up stoneware butter crocks when you find them at flea markets. They're just the right size for serving party spreads and dips, as well as butter.
