Cheese Straws are delectable and great for parties or even to give as a gift. They are sharp and delicious!
1 1/2cups flour
1/2tsp fine sea salt
Pinch cayenne pepper
1/2lb sharp cheddar cheese freshly grated
1/2cup (one stick) unsalted butter
Preheat oven to 375. Pam two baking sheets.
In a small bowl, combine flour salt and cayenne.
"In a heavy-duty mixer fitted with the paddle, cream the cheese and butter at a medium speed until smooth and well combined. Gradually add the flour mixture. Mix on low speed until smooth. (The dough can also be made in the bowl of a large food processor: grate the cheese with the grating blade, then transfer the cheese to a bowl and insert the metal blade. Pulse the dry ingredients to combine, then add the butter and cheese. Process until smooth.) Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and set aside to rest for about 15 minutes."
Work the dough in your hands. Shape the dough into a cylinder and pack it into a cookie press fitted with the serrated ribbon disk.
"Holding the cookie press at an angle to one of the prepared baking sheets, press the trigger twice, dragging the press away to make a long straw the length of the baking sheet, spacing the ribbons of dough 1 inch apart. Using a butter knife or offset spatula, cut each ribbon into 1- to 2-inch pieces. Repeat with the remaining dough and the other baking sheet. (If the cookie press extrudes the dough in fits and spurts, simply pick up the dough and reuse.)"
"Bake for 10 minutes, then rotate the sheets. Bake for another 10 minutes. Remove the baking sheet to a rack to cool slightly. Using an offset or slotted spatula, remove the individual cheese straws to cool completely. Store at room temperature in an airtight container between sheets of waxed paper for up to 2 to 3 weeks."
