Gingerbread Swirls with Blue Cheese

Here's a perfect holiday treat! I served it with Glögg - Swedish spiced wine - but it will go well with any spiced wine or maybe some hot apple cider.

Gingerbread Swirls with Blue Cheese
From Tina. by Tina Nordström

2 large squares of thin, soft bread or tortillas
10-15 gingerbread cookies
150 g blue cheese (I like St Agur for this)
1-2 tsp olive oil
20 toothpicks

Crumble the cheese in a bowl. Add a little olive oil, drop by drop, and mix well with a fork, until it's a smooth paste. Spread this on the breads, and make sure to go all the way to the edges. Crumble the cookies evenly over the surface, and roll up tightly like you would a swiss roll. Wrap in plastic, and let the rolls rest in the fridge for at least half an hour before cutting. Cut the rolls into slices, and put a toothpick in each one.

I have to say that I cant imagine those tastes together at all. Salty, sweet, spicy...well, they are all my favorite things!

Dang this is cool! I've never thought to pair gingerbread and blue cheese together - Such contrasting flavors but it does sound good!

Anne said...

Kalyn - I'll try! :) I've never made it myself, and I want to give you a recipe I trust. Also, most recipes are boring and just say "add a bag of Glogg spicing" and that won't help much! :)

Rachael & Joe - gingerbread cookies and blue cheese have been very popular for a couple of years here. It's really tasty!

Sailu - thank you, I'll get around to that soon! :)

Ginger and blue cheese is a wonderful combination! I just have to try these for Jul :) I went to Skansen yesterday to the julmarknaden - far too many gormet goodies! I bought "honung med pepparmynta" tastes like heaven!
