Simple stilton and sesame seed treats...

It is quite apparent that my Sister, Brother and I all inherited our sweet tooth from Father. I’m not entirely sure why Mother isn’t fond of sickly treats oozing with chocolatewhat a strange Lady! When we go out for meals she can barely read the dessert menu without retching, let alone actually consuming one! So, unfortunately for Mother’s Day I couldn’t push the boat out with a 5-tiered cake jam-packed with icing, chocolate and more icing. I had to keep it simple and cater for her 'savoury tooth'. What a challenge! I’m not really a savoury devotee, cheese doesn’t really appeal to me but after all it was Mother’s Day so I had to listen to Mother’s taste buds – not my own!

I decided to make stilton and sesame seed biscuits (or bakes) whatever you would like to call them. They are super easy to make and only consist of 4 ingredients; so if you like stilton then you are onto a winner!


100g self raising flour
100g unsalted butter (cubed)
100g stilton (crumbled)
50g sesame seeds

Step one

Take your cubed butter and rub it into your self raising flour until it resembles breadcrumbs.

Step two

Add in your (very smelly) stilton and knead your mixture to make sure all of the stilton is evenly distributed.

Step three

Wrap in cling film and place in the refrigerator for around 20 minutes. 

Step four

Pinch out small pieces of the dough and roll the small balls in the sesame seeds to coat well.

Step five

Place them on a baking tray (or in my case a cupcake tray to create perfect little circles) and bake for 10-15 minutes on 180 oC. 

Step Six 


I hoard endless magazine cut outs, I simply can't bare to throw out my favourite AD Campaigns or any beautiful images in general.

SO...I thought I would put these to good use and line a tin with one of my favourite Mulberry campaigns (shot on Brighton beach).

Certainly adds a little boost of Summer loving!

I detest Stilton so I stayed well away from these little biscuits. I generally like to try my treats before dishing them out, but hey ho, I just had to hope for the best! Thankfully Mother LOVED them as did the other stilton lovers. Phewwww. 

If you too have more of a 'savoury tooth' as I like to call it, then I recommend making a batch of these bad boys!

Lots of Love,
