Serves | Prep Time | Cook Time


1 C cheddar (grated)
1/3 C butter or shortening
few drops Worcestershire sauce
dash cayenne pepper
1 C Jenny Wren flour (1 C flour + 1-1/2 tsp baking powder + 1/2 tsp salt)

Cream cheese and butter.

Add sauce and pepper.

Then add flour.

If grated cheese is used it may be necessary to add small amount of water to make dough stick together.

Consistency should be the same as for pie crust.

Shape in ribbons using a cookie machine, or roll out like pie crust.

Cut in long thin strips.

Bake in hot oven (450 degrees) until delicately browned.

According to the Food Company Cookbooks blog, “Jenny Wren Recipes (1926, 16 pages) is a cute little pamphlet with recipes for biscuits, shortcake, dumplings, pancakes and waffles, quick breads, doughnuts, pies and cakes, cookies and other desserts.”

Jenny Wren ready-made (self-rising) flour originated in Lawrence Kansas since the 1920s. The flour mill operated on the riverfront of the Kaw River in conjunction with the Bowersock Mill.
