Dare to Eat Cookies… Cheese Straws!

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.

Dare to DIY

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.

Cheese Straws


1/2lb Cheddar
1/2lb butter
1/2lb flour
Red pepper (dash or more- up to you)


  1. Heat oven to 350*
  2. Shred the cheese (you can use the pre-shredded stuff, but its better if you shred it yourself)
  3. Mix cheese and butter in a food processor
  4. Add flour, but not all at once. You want the consistency to be dough-like
  5. Pipe into sticks/straws on a cookie sheet and bake. for 8-15 minutes. You don’t want them to get brown.

Paula Deen has a Cheese Straw recipe too — here.
