Roquefort Bites

1 1/2 cups mashed potatoes (about 2 medium baking potatoes)
1 cup flour plus extra for dusting
1/4 cup salted butter
1/3 cup Roquefort cheese
1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
Paprika
Chopped parsley

1. Combine mashed potatoes, flour and salted butter to form dough. Turn dough out onto lightly floured surface and knead as bread dough about 5 minutes or until smooth, satiny and not sticky.
2. Divide dough in half and roll to 1/4" thickness on lightly floured surface. Cut out circles using 1 3/4" biscuit cutter. Spray baking sheets with no-stick cooking spray and bake cutouts at 375 F 20 to 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire rack to cool.
3. For filling, blend together Roquefort cheese and unsalted butter until smooth. Spread a layer of cheese mixture on one dough round and top with another, sandwich style. Roll half of bite edges in paprika and other half in chopped parsley. Makes about 2 dozen.
