Blue Cheese and Walnut Turnovers

walnuts

Somehow walnuts and blue cheese have an affinity for each other.  They work well in a spinach salad, in a buttermilk salad dressing, and in cheese rolls.  We love this easy appetizer with an always impressive presentation on a silver tray.

  • 2 sticks of butter
  • 8 ounces of blue cheese, crumbled
  • 2 cups of self-rising flour
  • 1 teaspoon of cayenne pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon of sea salt
  • 1 pound of toasted walnut halves

Cream first five ingredients and roll into a three inch diameter log. Chill for an hour, then cut half-inch thick circles, fold each over a walnut half, seal edges with an egg wash, and bake for fifteen minutes in a 350 degree oven or until brown.
