Amuse-bouche

For countless years we have remembered Memorial Day with friends at our home.  We are reading and contemplating a book called Heaven by Randy Alcorn.  We were thrilled to speculate we'll be eating and drinking in the New Earth!

After making the decision not to serve appetizers, I found myself with some blue cheese that needed to be used.

Simply something something… I fancied a showstopper big idea in a small bite.

Time was short.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Blue Cheese, White Cheddar, Butter, Flour, and Rosemary

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I began to process the butter with the rosemary

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

and decided it called for some fresh ground pepper too.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Keen tiny bits of  green rosemary.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In go the two cheeses.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Combine the cheeses with the butter.  You might want to add salt too.  Taste it.

At this spot it could become a compound butter or a topping for potatoes or?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I added flour

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

and pulsed it into a nice clump.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

After rolling it out, I pawed through a zillion cookie cutters.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This was just the right size.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A poke with a cocktail fork

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

and a pinch of Kosher salt.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Adorable petite biscuit.

Tender buttery, salty, flakey, cheesy, piney blue bites.

Now where is that fishy cookie cutter and block of Extra Sharp Tillamook?
