  Butter 4 Ounce
  Mature cheddar cheese 4 Ounce, grated
  Salt 1 Pinch
  Dry mustard 1 Pinch
  Beaten egg 1
  Chopped walnuts 1 Tablespoon

Sift the flour into a bowl. Rub the butter into the flour with the fingertips until the mixture resembles fine crumbs. Add the cheese, salt and mustard and work together to form a dough.
Roll out the dough to about 6 mm (i inch) thick on a lightly floured board. Neaten the edges and cut into 5 cm (2 inch) squares. Cut each in half diagonally. Brush the sables with beaten egg. Sprinkle with nuts and press them lightly into the dough. Place on a baking sheet and bake in a preheated moderately hot oven (200°C/400°F, Gas Mark 6) for about 10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
