1/2 lb blue cheese
10 tablespoon Butter; room temperature
1 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 cup poppy seeds
Adjust oven rack to middle position and preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a food processor fitted with the metal blade, cream together the blue cheese and butter. Add the flour and cayenne, processing just to blend. Transfer to a bowl and work in the poppy seeds. Divide the dough in half, wrap in plastic wrap and chill for 30 minutes.
Roll each dough half into a 1 inch thick cylinder and refrigerate again until very firm, about 2 hours.
Cut the cylinders into 1/4 inch thick slices. Place on ungreased baking sheets and bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 17-20 minutes, until golden brown.
Serve warm or at room temperature. Store in air-tight containers.
