Stilton and nut bites
- 175g plain flour
- Large pinch of cayenne pepper
- Large pinch of dry mustard powder
- Pinch of salt
- 125g cubed butter
- 50g grated Asda Stilton
- 75g grated Asda Extra Mature Cheddar
- 75g finely chopped walnuts
- 1 large egg
- 2 tbsp poppy seeds
Pre-heat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5. Line three baking trays with baking paper. Sift flour, cayenne pepper, dry mustard powder and salt into a bowl and stir. Rub in butter.
Add Stilton, Cheddar and walnuts, and stir to mix evenly. Beat egg and add half to the walnut mix. Mix with your hands to make a dough.
Shape into 40 small balls. Put on the trays, leaving a gap between each one, and flatten slightly with the palm of your hand.
Brush the tops with the rest of the beaten egg, then sprinkle with poppy seeds.
Bake for 15 minutes. Cool the bites on the baking trays for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire racks to finish cooling.
