Ingredients

  • 150g Danish blue cheese, roughly chopped
  • 100g softened unsalted butter, roughly chopped
  • 1 medium egg yolk
  • 100g plain flour, plus extra for dusting
  • 75g quick-cook polenta
  • 1 tsp poppy seeds

Method

  1.  Preheat the oven to 200°C/fan180°C/gas 6. Line 2 baking sheets with baking paper. In a bowl, mash the cheese with a fork. Add the butter and egg yolk and mix together. Sift over the flour, add the polenta and mix into a stiff dough. Shape into a ball, flatten slightly, wrap in cling film and pop into the freezer for 15 minutes to chill.
  2.  Dust a work surface with a little flour. Roll out the cheese dough to a 5mm thickness. Using a 5cm star-shaped cutter, cut out biscuits and put onto the baking sheets. Re-roll the trimmings to cut out more biscuits, making 30 in total. Sprinkle the biscuits with poppy seeds, pressing them in lightly so they stick. Bake for 12-15 minutes until golden. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  3.  Gift-wrap with a card or label explaining to store in an airtight box and eat within a week.
