Stilton and Walnut Pie

A delicious blend of cream cheese plus English blue cheese (stilton) all combined with walnuts, onions, and herbs for extra flavor, texture, and crunch this is one of the most delicious savory pies you’ll ever make!

We are excited to go to England in a few week’s time! Because of this, I thought it’s about time I¬†add a British recipe, after all I am married to one! ūüôā

Thankfully,¬†my husband has such¬†an eclectic taste when it comes to food and is always willing to try something new¬†that he’s not too bothered that I don’t do much British cooking.

Actually, in our house, there isn’t any particular nationality to our food and even though I am Filipino we don’t have Filipino food all the time¬†– I always jump from one country to another when it comes to food – I suppose I am a blogger and I ought to do that, don’t I?

Nonetheless, my husband wanted me to make his favorite recipe from the UK which his mom often makes for us when we visit them.

Sadly though, by the time I made this recipe, he was already on his strict diet and so was unable to taste this.

Fortunately though¬†he’ll be done by the time we get to England so he’ll be able to taste this yummy and vintage British savory¬†specialty – Stilton and Walnut Pie – once again!

A blend of delicious cream cheese and the English Blue Cheese – Stilton all mixed together with crunchy Walnuts for extra flavor and texture — how can you go wrong?

I have to warn you this is so more-ish, so good that I had to give half the pie away to a friend lest I end up eating all of it.

My son loved this too, I was surprised ’cause he doesn’t like nuts and who knew a 7 year old would love the strong taste of Stilton — perhaps he loved it with cream cheese!!!

No matter – this is a truly excellent pie and though quite calorific – it’s great to¬†serve on special occasions – especially perfect for lunch or brunch when company is around! Enjoy!

WHAT INGREDIENTS TO USE TO MAKE STILTON & WALNUT PIE

  • Pie dough or short-cut pastry – homemade or storebought
  • Eggs
  • Stilton cheese, crumbled
  • Cream cheese, softened
  • Onions,¬†chopped
  • Half and Half or Full¬†Cream
  • Fresh Parsley, chopped
  • Ground Black Pepper, to taste
  • Walnuts chopped

HOW TO MAKE STILTON & WALNUT PIE

Preheat the oven to 375F. Line a pie or round cake pan with the short-crust pastry or pie dough. Set aside.

In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, whisk or beat the eggs together just until combined. If using a mixer, stop the motor and add the rest of the ingredients except the walnuts. Blend until everything is mixed together. Stir in the chopped walnuts.

Transfer or pour the mixture onto a pastry-lined pie and bake for about 40-45 minutes or until set and a tester comes out clean or with only a few crumbs clinging. It will fully set as it cools down and when it reaches room temperature so it may still be soft when you take it out of the oven.

Serve warm, cold or room temp, whatever you prefer. You can refrigerate the left-overs if you want. You may reheat it but I just eat it cold straight from the fridge.

Serve with some salad and lovely crusty bread! Enjoy!!!

    Stilton bleu cheese is a special treat around here and we absolutely love it. I love the creamy and almost Smokey taste and I am positive that we'll love this pie too. Thank you so much for sharing.

    Oh WOW! Abby, this looks absolutely delicious!!! I love cheese, and especially blue cheese so I'll definetely make this very soon! Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!! ūüôā Just one question: When you say short-cut pastry, what exactly is that? I really like puff-pastry (store-bought I must shamefully admit), would that me more or less the same? No need for pre-baking (blind baking) before adding the cheese filling?
    Have a great day and I bet you're looking forward to visiting England! Have a great trip!
