Blue Cheese Pecan Wafers. New Music From Field Trip.

Blue Cheese Pecan Wafers

Q: What do you call a belt made out of watches?
A: A waist of time.

These Blue Cheese Pecan Wafers are the perfect, light starter to serve with drinks before a big meal. They are packed with flavor and look so elegant.

Ingredients:

8 Tbs unsalted butter, softened
1 cup crumbed blue cheese
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
Dash of cayenne pepper
1/2 cup pecans, finely chopped

Directions:

1. Place the butter, blue cheese, flour and cayenne in the bowl of a food processor fitted with steel blade. Process until the mixture is smooth, about 15 seconds. Transfer the dough to a small bowl and mix in the chopped pecans.

2. Place dough on top of an 18 inch long piece of waxed paper. Shape into a log about 12 inches long. Wrap the paper around the log and refrigerate until firm enough to handle, about 15 minutes.

3. Unwrap dough and place on a clean strip of waxed paper. Use your hands to stretch the dough into a longer log. Wrap the waxed paper around the log but do not seal the ends. Using light motions, roll the log back and forth on the work surface until it is about 15 inches long and 1.5 inches in diameter. Place log in freezer for 30 minutes to make it easier to slice.

4. About 20 minutes before baking, remove the dough log from the freezer. Preheat oven to 375℉.

5. Cut log into slices, about 1/4-inch thick. Place wafers on a parchment-lined baking sheet. (Some of the log was a bit crumbly as I was trying to slice. I rolled it a bit between my warm hands to soften.)

6. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until edges are turning golden brown.

7. Transfer to wire racks to cool.

Makes about 4 dozen

I could so imagine having ‘2 NY’ playing while serving cocktails and some delicious starters. It’s a little industrial and a lotta strange. I love it.

Check out Field Trip on the band’s Website. You can buy their music here.

Cheers!
