To make the biscuits‚ beat the egg yolk into 75g (3oz) butter‚ then stir in the flour‚ white stilton‚ seasoning and mustard to taste. Knead the mixture to form a smooth dough‚ then roll out thinly on a lightly floured worktop.
Cut out 2.5cm (1 inch) circles with a plain biscuit cutter. Place slightly apart on a baking sheet and bake in the oven at 200 deg C (400 deg F)‚ gas mark 6‚ for about 10 minutes until golden brown.
Cool on a wire rack.
Meanwhile‚ prepare the filling. Beat the remaining butter and blue stilton together until soft and thoroughly combined. Taste the filling and add seasoning to taste. Spoon the creamed mixture into a piping bag fitted with a star nozzle. Pipe a rosette of cheese mixture on to each of the biscuits‚ then press together in pairs with a rosette on top. Alternatively the filling may be spread on the biscuits with a knife.RETURN TO RECIPE LIST
