Cheese Straws


These Cheese Straws are a favorite ’cause they’re easy to make and tasty as can be. They’re just as great for snack time as they are for dipping into a bowl of soup or chili.

Makes: 60

Cooking Time: 10 minutes

What You’ll Need:
  • 2 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper

What To Do:

    1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat rimmed baking sheets with cooking spray.
    2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients. Using your hands, knead well until a soft dough forms.
    3. Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface to a 1/4-inch thickness. Cut into 1/2- x 3- inch strips; place on baking sheets.
    4. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until golden. Serve warm or allow to cool completely, then place in an airtight container until ready to serve.


Dipping these in a bowl of Chili is fabulous!
