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
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.
