Cheddar Cheese Straws
November 23, 2005

I found this recipe a few years back and have made it every Christmas eve for our annual Christmas eve party. Every year I get tons of compliments on it! This is an AWESOME recipe and very easy to make! I usually omit the pepper but add paprika...People show up to the party just for the cheese straws I think! I've never had a problem with the dough, but what I do is set my butter out the night before I make these so that the butter is at room temp and very soft, I also put my cheese out a few hours before making them so that it's at room temp and soft. Also, use freshly shredded sharp or extra sharp cheddar cheese, I made these with packaged shredded cheese and they weren't as good as with freshly shredded cheese. Takes a but longer but you'll appreciate it in the end!
