Easy Cheese Straws
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 15 min. + cooling
Easy and delicious I put some fried shallots in or chives
The trick is to use a stand mixer with a flat paddle on high. It will cut the dough into tiny bits, but if you leave it running, the bits will form into soft chunks. As soon as that happens, stop the mixer, roll out the dough into little balls, flatten with a fork, and bake.
The recipe did not mention to have the cheese at room temperature, so the mixture of cheese and butter became a brick. Now I’m waiting for it to soften so I can mix in the flour. Not happy.

Mine were not as pretty as these, but the taste was spot on!!! My husband liked them so much, I will have time to learn to make them prettier next time!
I doubled the recipe but still baked in two separate batches. So EASY and so DELICIOUS! I did cook each batch (gas oven) for 27 minutes at 350, turning the pan around at 15 minutes. At 20 min, they were still quite soft. Other than a difference in timing, the recipe was spot on and I have a new favorite to make as snacks and to take to parties!
wonderful flavor! I rolled each one by hand into a thin straw.
I have loved these since I was a Child. Takes me back to a Happier time. I have also tried them with roasted pecans chopped up in it.
