"These are really delicious. Pastry-light and easy to make. Fun to make with kids. Great for parties, but make 5 times more than you think you'll need because your family will eat the first 2 batches."

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Process Cheddar cheese, flour, butter, 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, cayenne pepper, and salt in a food processor until large crumbs form; transfer to a bowl. Stir milk into the cheese mixture until it forms a ball of dough.
  3. Roll dough out onto a lightly floured work surface to about 1/8-inch thick. Use a pizza cutter or thin knife to trim the edges of the dough to leave a large square with sides measuring 7 to 8 inches. Cut dough into 1/3-inch strips and arrange onto a baking sheet.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until puffy, about 15 minutes. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons Parmesan cheese over the warm cheese straws.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • It's fun to try to twist them once or twice, but not necessary.
  • It's fun to try to twist the strips once or twice before baking, but not necessary.
  • Don't let them get brown while baking, or they'll dry out.
