150g chilled butter pieces
175g sifted plain flour
3tbsp finely chopped fresh sage leaves
100g blue cheese
65g chopped and toasted pecans
Blend the butter with the flour and fresh sage in a food processor until the mixture looks like fine breadcrumbs.
Add the blue cheese, process until the mixture starts to come together in little lumps, then tip into a bowl and stir in the pecans.
Gently knead into a dough, then divide in half and roll each piece into a 5cm wide log. Wrap in cling film and chill for at least 30 minutes or until firm.
Heat the oven to 180°C. Unwrap the rolls and cut each one across into 5mm thick slices. Place 5cm apart on a lightly buttered non-stick baking sheet.
Bake for 10-12 minutes, then cool on a wire rack.
