Nothing beats southern tradition like these yummy cheese straws! Freezes well.
Bring butter and cheese to room temperature. Grate cheese with a grater or food processor.
Cream together butter and cheese. Gradually add flour, salt, cayenne and baking powder to cheese/butter mixture. May need to mix together with hands to blend all ingredients.
Run mixture through a cookie press using a ridged template. Slice lengths into 2″ pieces.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes until light brown on edges.
Makes about 15 dozen 2″ cheese straws.
NOTE: I was unhappy with the results using a Wilton cookie press. The ridged template in their kit is ridged on both sides and produced a much thicker cheese straw that didn’t bake as well. When my old Mirro cookie press broke, I found a bunch listed on eBay and have had great success with it.
Nancy is the Coupon Clipping Cook, which means she not only has an astounding number of recipes to share with us (her TK recipe box is busting at the seams!) but she's also got loads of money-saving tips in her blog (she worked at a grocery store for a number of years, so she knows her stuff). She has some pretty amazing creations, like Roasted Garlic Potato Soup and Nutty Coconut Chicken. Go check them out!
Heather is a Texas native and the blogger behind Heather's Dish. She's mom to Weston, wife to Nate, and they live in Little Rock, Arkansas with their two "stubborn and saucy" dogs Bunker and Keira. In her blog, she shares her photographs, random musings (serious and silly alike), and all kinds of scrumptious recipes---and not just evil variations of her favorite mac and cheese. Her enviable TK recipe box is a testament to that. Go see for yourself!
