Cheese Straws December 22, 2011


Nice easy one to get the Kiddies to help with during the Holidays.




50g self raising flour

pinch of cayenne pepper

25g softened butter

80g grated red leicester cheese

20g grated parmesan cheese




Preheat oven to 200C/gas mark 6.

Mix all ingredients together, either by hand or in a food processor. It might look crumbly but that’s OK. Knead it all together.

Roll it out thinly on a floured board. Cut into short strips or stamp out into star shapes with a star-shaped cookie cutter and put on a non-stick, greased or lined tray in the oven for 10 minutes.

Cool cheese straws on a wire rack.


Check the cheese straws after 8 minutes – some of my batches were definitely done by then.

You can also try different cheeses.


What do you think, would you make this?
