Crowdie Stuffed Mushrooms

Crowdie is a soft, light cheese made locally in Ardersier.  I love its slightly lemony tang and how versatile it is too.  Recently I’ve used it to make a raspberry cheesecake, canneloni and stuffed mushrooms.   The latter  is perhaps my favourite and has been eaten alongside lots of crunchy salad leaves for lunch this summer.
