Ingredients

8 tablespoons butter
1/2 pound sharp cheddar cheese or blue cheese
1 3/4 cups flour
salt, to taste
1/2 cayenne pepper, more or less
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce


Preheat oven to 300 degrees.


Put the butter and cheese in the container of a food processor.


Add the flour, salt, cayenne, and worcestershire.


Cover and blend thoroughly.


If a food processor is not used, put the flour , salt and cayenne in a bowl. Add the butter, cheese, and Worcestershire, and using two knives or a pastry blender, blend thoroughly.


Use a cookie press outfitted with a hounds tooth or star dispenser.


Push the dough out onto an ungreased baking sheet to make individual straws.


Or, if desired, roll the dough out to a 1/8-inch thickness and cut it into individual strips, which can be twisted if desired, or other shapes.


Arrange the pieces on 1 or 2 ungreased baking sheets.


Place the baking sheet or sheets in the oven and bake 20 to 25 minutes, or until the straws are crisp and lightly browned.


If you wish a darker color let them cook longer. Remove and let cool.


Makes about 6 dozen
