Blue Cheese Walnut Cracker Recipe
Description: Make sure to chop the walnuts very fine, to make it easier to roll the dough thin and cut out the shapes. If you like, add 1/4 teaspoon finely chopped rosemary to the dough with (or instead of) the cayenne. You can chill the dough for several hours or overnight, but you'll need to let the dough sit at room temperature so it will be soft enough to roll.
