Joan's Cheese Straws
Preheat oven to 425 Deg
- Grate or grind 1/4 to 1/2 lb. aged cheddar cheese
Roll the dough into 1 inch rolls. Wrap in foil and refrigerate or freeze until cold enough to slice as thin as possible, under 1/4 inch. Bake in preheated oven 475 Deg oven about 12 minutes
- 3-4 Tblsp soft butter
- 3/4 cup all purpose flour
- 1 tsp worcestershire sauce
- 1/2 tsp salt
- dash of hot pepper sauce
The pastry keeps for weeks in the refrigerator or freezer and can be quickly sliced and baked for the unexpected guest. Or, just after mixing put the dough in a pastry tube to make straws. Or, use the 1.5 inch ribbon disk on a cookie press to make ribbons. Cut into 2 in lengths.
They are yummy, sinful with a tiny bit of pepper bite to them. I made them once without the pepper sauce and they just weren't the same.
