Blue Cheese, Rosemary and Smoked Almond Crackers
Prep time: 20 minutes
Chill time: several hours
Cook time: about 10 to 12 minutes
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup Blue Diamond Smokehouse Almonds, finely chopped
1 tablespoon snipped fresh rosemary
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon coarse grind black pepper
1 1/4 cups flour
1 (4-oz.) container Alouette Crumbled Blue Cheese
Stir together butter, almonds, rosemary, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Stir in flour, then stir in Alouette Blue Cheese, mixing until a soft dough forms (using your hands is easiest). Roll into 3 logs, about 1 1/4-inches in diameter. Cover with waxed paper or plastic wrap and chill for at least 1 hour or until very firm. (May be prepared several days ahead.) Preheat oven to 400°F and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Using a small sharp knife, slice dough 1/8-inch thick. Place on baking sheets and bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Let cool on baking sheets, then transfer to an airtight container. Makes about 150 tiny crackers.
