Of course you can make these into cheese straws or any other shape.
226g strong cheddar cheese, grated
56g butter, cubed, at room temperature
1 cup plain flour
3/4 tsp salt
2 – 3 Tbsp cold water
Pulse everything except water together in the food processor until the dough resembles coarse sand.
Pulse in water, 1 Tbsp at a time. Remove dough from the processor, wrap in plastic, and leave at room temperature for 20 minutes. DO NOT put in the fridge or you’ll end up with a solid block, I know, I tried it 😦
Preheat oven to 175C/gas 4.
Roll out dough and cut into desired shapes. Please on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet & bake for about 15 – 20 minutes, or until golden brown & crispy.
