Savory Litehouse Blue Cheese “Cookies”

Sprinkled with Sweet PaprickaBased on “Gorgonzola Cookies” recipe I found at Mystery Lovers’ Kitchen

While wandering around the internet, I came across a recipe for Gorgonzola “Cookies” which can be viewed via the link above.

I had a tub of Litehouse Blue Cheese Crumbles and decided to use them to make these savory cookies.

Here’s what I did:


3/4 cup Miss Anne’s Georgia Pecans
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
3 tablespoons cold butter, cut into pieces
4 ounces Litehouse Blue Cheese Crumbles
Sweet Paprika to sprinkle on baked cookies


Ingredients: Blue Cheese, Pecans, Butter, Flour, Salt and PepperI assembled all my ingredients.

Preheated oven to 350.

I toasted the pecans in the oven, using an iron skillet, for about 10 minutes.

Using my food processor, I pulsed the toasted pecans into a fine dust.

Then I added the flour, salt, and pepper to the pecans and pulsed to mix.

Next I added the cold butter and pulsed until integrated.

I added the Litehouse Blue Cheese Crumbles and pulsed until the dough created clumps.IMG_20140104_141819_882

I shaped the dough into a roll and chilled until firm enough to cut into disks. You could also roll out the dough and use cookie cutters to create more whimsical shapes.

I baked the disks for 12 to 15 minutes, until the center was almost firm. I baked on parchment paper. The bottoms will be brown but not the tops.

I sprinkled the baked cookies with sweet paprika to add a little color.

The Man and I did a tasting using the cookies paired with honey and several jams:

The Man’s favorite pairings were the Strawberry Jam, the Orange Marmalade and the Cherry Preserves, giving 4 Paws to each of them.

My favorites were the Honey, Sully’s Date Jam and Kelly’s Habanero Pepper Jelly… all 4 Paw winners for me; however, all of them were tasting winners in my book:
