Cheese Straws

Just in time for the holidays!

Cheese Straws

2 cups extra sharp cheddar cheese, grated
2 sticks butter, room temperature
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
2 cups four
1 Tbl. lemon juice

Preheat oven to 425 degrees. In a large bowl combine all ingredients. Knead with your hands to soften the mixture and form a ball. Dive into 3 portions. Between sheets of floured wax paper, roll each portion until thin. Cut into strips. Bake on a cookie sheet for about 12 minutes or until lightly browned. Let cool. Using a spatula transfer to paper towels to drain. Store in air tight container.

These cheese straws are simple to make and so delicious. You can change the flavor by using blends of cheese. These are really good made with the seasoned Mexican cheese blend found in your grocery store.
