Why I Love This Recipe

Craig Claiborne's Southern Cooking

Ingredients You'll Need

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.
