If you're not a HUGE bleu cheese lover, you might just think these are ok, but they're a must for bleu cheese enthusiasts! The first log I made was per this recipe. They were good, but I tweeked it by adding 1/4 tsp garlic powder, let the log chill overnight, sliced them then gave each cracker a dash of hot sauce before baking. They were delish!! While serving them to friends, some topped it with a grilled shrimp, great combination!!

I only gave it three stars because not everyone favors bleu cheese. If you like it, you'll like these. I tasted the dough and thought it needed a little kick, so replaced the salt with 1/2 teaspoon garlic parsley salt and a few twists on the crushed red pepper grinder. Then I sprinkled the cracker tops with just a touch of sea salt and popped them in the oven. I guess know your audience because I came home from my party with an empty plate, I think they licked it for crumbs! Btw, slicing was aided by using a sharp knife and dipping in warm water between every few slices. (; These would also be good sprinkled with dill or savory or any spice you love with your bleu cheese.

These were a major hit! I used a little more bleu cheese, a little less butter, and almonds instead of walnuts. They had to bake a longer, about 15 minutes. The taste was exceptional - nutty and delicious. We topped ours with a dollop of homemade hot pepper jelly.

Be sure the dough is very chilled before slicing. TIP: Use waxed dental floss to slice intead of a knife.

I made this recipe and found that these wafers were fairly tasteless and very brittle. I like blue cheese but I really did not like this recipe. They weren't bad with some tuna mixed with spicy brown mustard and some mayonnaise but they didn't add too much flavor. I will not be making these again.

I love this recipe, my mom made this for Christmas last year! It was a big hit!

Not a bad recipe, just average in my book. The wafers came out a bit dry for my taste. Took them to a party and they were barely touched. Probably would not make again.

I made a couple of add-ons to the recipe. We love blue cheese and we loved these crackers. I bundled them in family Christmas parcels with a blackberry pepper jelly. I added 1/2 tsp. of garlic powder, 1/4 tsp. hot chili flakes and a dash of worcestershire sauce to the dough. Also, I didn't have walnuts so I used pecans. I cooked them longer (20 minutes) and flipped them half way through to add some crispiness...absolutely will make these again
