Servings: Makes 25 Shortbreads
Ingredients:
3 1/2 ounces blue cheese
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
2/3 cup butter
3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh sage
2 ounces pecans, shelled and chopped
3 1/2 ounces soft spreadable goat cheese


Preparation:
Blend blue cheese, flour, butter and sage in a food processor until a sticky dough forms. Turn out and work pecans into dough. Divide dough in half and roll into logs about 2 inches in diameter. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes. The rolls must be very firm before baking. 

Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Remove plastic wrap and cut rolls into 1/4-inch slices. Place slices 1 inch apart on a baking sheet. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until golden. Let cool on a wire rack

To serve, top each shortbread with a small amount of goat cheese
