If you are a big fan of cheese like I am, you will love these cheese straws! Should you have some leftover hard cheese in your refrigerator, this is a great way to put that cheese to good use.
I like sharp cheddar or Parmesan myself but, it really does not matter what type of cheese you use; any variety works well. You can make them for a fraction of the price of store-bought, which are usually stale or have broken into pieces by the time you get them home.
Some cooks pipe the cheese straws from a pastry bag, some use a cookie press with the star or serrated ribbon disc and still others roll the dough out and cut it into strips. Then, just pop them in the oven! They can be stored in an airtight container; actually, they improve in flavor when they are made the day before being served. Cheese straws can also be frozen until you’re ready to enjoy them.
And with Super Bowl parties just around the corner, they would be perfect!
