Blue Cheese Biscuits

They have been my go to recipe for years.  Perfect bite sized "yum yum's" (as my 5 year old calls them) for just about any event ( I have used them from football tailgating to baby showers to holiday appetizers or "just becuase".). 
Out of all the appetizers I have made in the past this one is the most asked about and is ALWAYS a hit (assuming of course you are a fan of blue cheese).  I haven't tried these with any other type cheese but feel free to explore and let me know how they come out.  For now here is the Recipe:

 What you will need:
1 Can Pillsbury "Grands" Biscuits.  I use the Homestyle one but can also use Buttermilk.
1 Stick of Butter.
1 container of crumbled blue cheese.

Preheat oven according to biscuits instructions.  Open can and layout on a cookie sheet.  Cut into quarters (I use a pizza cuter for this, easier and faster)

Next melt you stick of butter slowly and when it is half way melted add the blue cheese. 

Depending on how mild or strong you want the blue cheese taste to be, adjust accordingly, I have used only half container in the past for a very mild flavor, but most of the time I use the entire tub.  You can do what erv you prefer or even just use 3/4 of the container for a medium taste. 
Once the cheese in start stirring and switch over to a wire whisk.  Stir frequently until all the cheese has melted into the butter and you get a thick yet smooth consistency.

Next, using a basting brush dab the cheese mixture on all of the biscuits.  Coating heavily.

Put in oven and cook according to biscuits instructions but wacth them as they can cook pretty quickly.  They are usually done between 12-15 minutes.  Finished product looks like this:

Transfer to serving dish and serve warm.  Enjoy!!
