      1/2   lb           (8 ounces) blue cheese,
                         Broken into small pieces
    8       tb           (1 stick) butter or
                         Margarine, softened
    2       c            All-purpose or rice flour
      1/4   c            Buckwheat groats or chopped
                         Toasted nuts of your choice
      1/4   ts           Pepper
      1/4   c            Milk
 
   “These ”blue chips" are definitely a good investment
   that produce profitable returns in the form of
   compliments from all who try them. The texture is
   light and lacy, and the blue cheese flavor mellows
   with baking. Try serving them with a dry white wine.
   305~F. 20 to 25 minutes Preheat the oven to 350~F.
   Cream the butter and cheese together in the food
   processor, or in a large bowl using a pastry blender
   or two kinves. In another bowl, stir together the
   flour, buckwheat groats or nuts (if desired) and
   pepper. Add the flour mixture to the butter-cheese
   mixture and blend well.
   
   Blend in the milk, little by little, to form a dough
   that will hold together in a cohesive ball. The dough
   should be quite stiff. Divide it into 2 equal portions
   for rolling. On a floured surface or pastry cloth,
   roll out to about 3/16 inch thick. Cut into 1-1/2-inch
   circles and place on an ungreased baking sheet, making
   sure the edges do not touch. Prick each cracker in 1
   or 2 places with the tines of a fork.
   
   Bake for 15 minutes, turn, and bake for an additional
   5 to 10 minutes, or until medium brown. Yield: 130-40.
