Sun-Dried Tomato Blue Cheese Cookies

Sun-Dried Tomato Blue Cheese Cookies with cheddar, pine nuts, and herbs are savory, delicious, and addictive biscuits which are perfect snacks or even appetizers.

Hi, friends. I hope you’ve enjoyed the weekend, and you’re now ready to tackle a new week. I’ve got these amazingly scrumptious Sun-Dried Tomato Blue Cheese Cookies to make this transaction smoother.

I am going to keep it classy and short today as somehow it’s freezing in our apartment. That’s a paradox as it wasn’t this way yesterday when the temperature outside was much lower. The bottom line: my fingers are trembling and my brain is shrinking which has affected my ability to coherently think and wright.

Way too dramatic? Perhaps. But I needed a solid excuse.

Also, I’ve got to update you on my recipe cituation. Remember that I’m currently posting the pictures taken in my previous life (aka before moving to Nova Scotia)? The good news is that I am almost done with this list. Indeed, after these Sun-Dried Tomato Blue Cheese Cookies, I’m planning on posting two NEW (aka made after the moving) Valentine’s ideas and then I’ll take a week or two to finish this list. I am certainly posting #2 and 8, and I might opt for another 1 or 2 items.

Sun-Dried Tomato Blue Cheese Cookies

  1. Pasta
  2. Baked pasta
  3. Another twist on my cheese savory cookies/biscuits
  4. Another twist on naan pizza
  5. Baked stuffed pasta (Possibly I discard this one as I am not fully satisfied with the pics)
  6. Twist on tiramisu (Possibly I discard this one as I haven’t checked the pictures)
  7. Fabulously delicious carrot cookies (Will likely discard this one as I cannot find the recipe/proportions I used)
  8. Another twist on fruit/berry curd (Will probably post as it has – a spoiler alert – a beautiful vibrant yellow&orange color)
  9. Persimmon salad (Delicious one, but the pictures are very boring. Will see)
  10. Cookie truffles (Will not post as I screwed the pictures)

Last year I shared a few ideas for cheese cookies/biscuits, and there’s another delicious twist on the basic recipe. These cookies are more piquant due to the addition of blue cheese. They are very versatile as you can choose different nuts, herbs, or kind of cheese. And if you missed the recipes posted last year, I’m friendly reminding some of them you might like:

That’s all for today. If you don’t hear from me in a couple of days, I might not able to turn my notebook on with my shaking fingers :)

Sun-Dried Tomato Blue Cheese Cookies

Serving Size: 20-25 cookies

Ingredients

    Cookies
  • 1 cup grated Cheddar (preferably smoked or sharp)
  • 2/3 cup soften butter
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 and 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes, drained and sliced
  • 1/2 cup pine nuts
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasonings
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • a little pinch of salt
  • a good pinch of black pepper
  • 1/2 - 2/3 cup blue cheese, crumbles
    Egg Wash
  • 1 small egg
  • 2/3 - 1 teaspoon water

Instructions

  1. In a bowl, combine the cheddar, butter, and egg. Beat until smooth, 1 minute.
  2. Stir in the flour (add 1 cup reserving the remaining), baking powder, salt, herbs, and spices. Mix until all ingredients incorporated adding more flour if necessary.
  3. Stir in the tomatoes and nuts. You will get soft dough. Cover the dough in plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 30-40 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 175 degrees C. Cover baking sheets with parchment.
  5. To make the egg wash, in a small cup/bowl mix one small egg and a little of cold water
  6. Roll the dough out (about 0,7-1 cm) and cut cookies with a cookie cutter or just slice with a knife. Place the cookies onto the sheets. Using a brush, slightly brush the cookies with the wash and then, if desired, sprinkle with the crumbled blue cheese.
  7. Bake the cookies for about 10-14 minutes or until slightly golden brown (They will look soft; however they will set more once cooled).
  8. Remove from the oven and let completely cool.
  9. Enjoy!

8 Thoughts on “Sun-Dried Tomato Blue Cheese Cookies

  1. I somehow can’t think beyond sweet cookies..but these..these look so amazing! I think these are perfect for snacking on! The flavors of sun dried tomatoes and blue cheese sound so amazing together..And I love the pictures Ben!!

  2. I can imagine how does it feel when the heaters suddenly stop working and you wait for the maintenance guy to come up and have a look. Hope your apartment is warm and cozy enough by the time you read this. And I am so loving these beautiful autumn-ish photos in white winter. I am not a huge fan of blue cheese, but I do adore sun-dried tomatoes. And these savory cookies are tempting me enough. I wish I could grab dew of these right away. Happy Weekend. :)
    PS: There is a lot to catch up, Ben. I am sure this is gonna take some time to go through everything I have missed. :)

  3. No no – you are not being too dramatic – in fact, Ben, I have often felt that “my brain is shrinking” too as my condo tends to be colder than the outside is, at times! I don’t get it! I’m thinking my neighbors are running their AC’s??? I have no idea how this could be!!!
    By the way, your photos are so lovely – I am so loving your styling in these pictures and am drooling over these savory Sun-Dried Tomato Blue Cheese Cookies! I don’t make savory cookies often because I don’t come up with combos as delightful as this (also my brain is frozen currently as it’s one of those cold inside, warming outside type of days!)
    :)

  4. I’ve got an old school friend who lives in Ontario. I know Nova Scotia is quite a bit further east from there but is there a huge amount of temperature difference? Love these savoury cookies! The contrast of the cheddar cheese and blue cheese together must be simply divine! Now go and get yourself a new pair of gloves my friend! ;-)

  5. Hi, Ben! Sorry to hear of the cold NS weather (indoors at least). These cookies look and sound amazing! I think I will give them a whirl and make them instead of biscuits. I think my family will love them and I may be a savory cookie convert as well! Thanks for the creative recipe!

  6. Well I was initially skeptical of your savory cookies but I was so excited to see you posting another one today! They’re grown on me :). And these sound awesome. I love blue cheese and sun-dried tomatoes. I’m thinking this would make a fantastic appetizer. Stay warm, Ben! I’ll try to bottle up some warm weather and send it up there for you!

  7. Ben! Go find yourself a jacket! :-) I love your savory cookie recipes, and this one follows the long line of deliciousness you’ve posted in the past. Blue cheese + sundried tomatoes go so well together, but I don’t think I’ve ever had them in cookie (cracker) form before. I bet these are packed with flavor! I appreciate the update on the recipe, but like many others have said, I say you should post it all. Every single recipe. Oh, and I also agree with Katherine…show us some photos of the new area!

  8. I’ve never been able to get behind blue cheese, but my husband loves it! He also loves savory treats, so this would be a real treat for him. I’m looking forward to seeing those pictures taken in the heart of Nova Scotia!!
