Ingredients
  • 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
Method
  • 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.
