50 g/2 oz wholemeal plain (all-purpose) flour
25 g/1 oz plain flour
75 g/3 oz unsalted (sweet) butter, softened
Freshly ground black pepper
75 g/3 oz Stilton or other blue cheese, crumbled

Mix together the flours, then rub in the butter until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Season with pepper. Mix in the cheese, then blend to a soft dough with the egg. Wrap the dough in clingfilm (plastic wrap) and chill for 1 hour. Roll out the dough to 3 mm or 1/8 in thick, cut into 5 cm/2 in rounds with a biscuit (cookie) cutter and place on un-greased baking (cookie) sheets. Brush with the yoghurt and sprinkle with the celery or sesame seeds. Bake in a preheated oven at 180C/350F/gas mark 4 for 12 minutes until crisp and brown. Cool on a wire rack, then store in an airtight container until required.
