Blue Cheese and Walnut Pastry Nibbles

We went to a drinks and nibbles party at the Auckland Zoo last night so I created these little savoury pastry roll ups. So good!
(Multiply as many times as you like depending on numbers). Each sheet will make about 20 .
1 sheet of flaky puff pastry ( I used Edmond's reduced fat flaky puff pastry)
1/2 cup of walnuts
50 grams of blue cheese
Preheat the oven to 200C
Defrost the flaky puff pastry sheet ( This will only take a few minutes)
Crush the walnuts inside a plastic bag by bashing them with a rolling pin.
Crumble the blue cheese.
Mix cheese and walnuts together in a bowl. Spread them over the pastry sheet.
Press down on them with your hand to make them stick. 
Roll the pastry up tightly and pinch the edges together well ( use a little water to stick them together if necessary)
Cut the roll into 1/2 cm slices with a very sharp knife.
Bake for about 10-12 minutes till golden brown ( watch towards the end as theycan burn easily)
Nicest served warm but still good when they have cooled down.
