"I won't forget the cheese straws that my mother made for my father. The only difference was that she did not add cayenne pepper. These make wonderful hors d'oevres."

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C). Grease or line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Combine the flour, baking powder, cayenne pepper, salt, grated cheese and butter or margarine in a bowl and mix until well combined. Add water a little bit at a time to make a very stiff dough.
  3. On a lightly floured surface, roll pieces of the dough into just slightly thicker than pencil shaped sticks. Cut sticks into 4 to 5 inch lengths. Arrange the pieces on the baking sheet.
  4. Bake at 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) for 5 minutes or until browned.

I've made a LOT of different cheese straw recipes and this is definitely the best. I grated a 10 oz block of extra sharp Cracker Barrel cheese in my food processor. Then I dumped it in my mixer ...

Try putting the dough through a cookie press to make the straws. Use a disc with a small opening like the star.

The recipe was excellent, although it was more time-consuming than I had thought to roll out the straws. After rolling them out, I refrigerated the straws for 5-10 min. (and then added 3-4 min....

I used a cookie press to squeeze mine into cute shapes. You can make ridged sticks or flower biscuits, etc.

I must have done something wrong. These were the worst things I have ever tasted. I made them twice and each time they were tasteless.

These were a little time consuming; however, they were worth the time! They have a lot of flavor that kicks in the more you eat! I had a party and the guests thought I bought these! I also fr...
