Ingredients

Preparation

  • Prep Time: 20 minutes
  • Cook time: 5 minutes
  • Serves: 4-6 people

Instructions

  • Lightly toast pecan nuts in a dry frying pan or in the oven, until lightly browned
  • Allow to cool on a rack
  • Using a hand blender puree chunks of the smoked Stilton and the crème fraîche (a slightly harder way would be to beat the ingredients together in a bowl with a wooden spoon)
  • When the mix is a smooth paste add the pecans (keeping some aside for decoration), pulse to a rough texture
  • Place in ramekins and chill for later use
  • Serve with toast or cheese biscuits, grapes and celery
