  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon curry powder
  • 1 cup butter, cut into small pieces
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chives, finely snipped
  • 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup grated sharp cheddar cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In medium bowl, stir together the flour, salt, and curry powder. Add butter and combine with fingers until it resembles a course meal. Add chives and cheeses. Work dough with fingertips until smooth. Divide dough in half. Roll out 1/2 of dough on a lightly floured work surface until 1/4 of an inch thick. Cut strips 1/4 inch wide and 5 inches long. Place strips on large baking sheet and bake for 20 minutes. Cool and transfer to plate. Repeat process with second half of dough. Serve warm.
To Make Ahead: Package baked cheese straws in an airtight container, separating layers with waxed paper and freeze for up to 1 month. Reheat at 350° for 5 minutes before serving.
