Blog Blue Cheese Walnut Crackers
True, they're not quite peanut butter and jelly, but blue cheese and walnuts are still a classic flavor pairing. Sprinkled onto salads, folded into pasta, or blended into dip, these two umami-rich foods make a real impact on your taste buds. (Umami means savory or, simply, tasty.) I love a good creamy-yet-sharp blue cheese (Castello makes a nice one) on crackers—or in them. This week's recipe for savory blue cheese and walnut crackers is a great one to have on hand when you want something home-baked to turn a simple lunch or supper into something a little more special. While they are not as crisp and thin as store-bought crackers, if you roll the dough to about 1/8 inch, you will get a nice crisp-edged texture, rather than a shortbread-like texture—a nice accent to a bowl of tomato soup or a plate of dressed greens.
