8 ounces blue cheese, crumbled
1/2 c. butter, softened
1 1/3 c. flour
1/3 c. poppy seeds
1/4 tsp. cayenne
With an electric mixer at medium speed, beat cheese and butter until creamy. Add flour, poppy seeds and pepper, beat until blended.
Chill dough for about an hour. Divide dough in half; shape each portion into a 9-inch log. Cover and chill until firm, a couple of hours.
Cut each log into quarter-inch rounds and place on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 13-15 minutes or until goldern. Transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
