Phew, better late than never. I’ve been a bit preoccupied. But it’s week 3 of Kim @ Newly Woodwards Dare to DIY Blog party and that means is cookies and other holiday baked goods week. So I’m here to share my recipe for Cheese Straws.
These are a pretty southern, I think, so I wouldn’t be surprised if many of you haven’t heard of them. I haven’t made them again this year yet, and the recipe always varies slightly since humidity can play a role.
Red pepper (dash or more- up to you)
- Heat oven to 350*
- Shred the cheese (you can use the pre-shredded stuff, but its better if you shred it yourself)
- Mix cheese and butter in a food processor
- Add flour, but not all at once. You want the consistency to be dough-like
- Pipe into sticks/straws on a cookie sheet and bake. for 8-15 minutes. You don’t want them to get brown.
