Cheese Straws

In medium bowl, mix together:

1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard

Blend in well:

1/3 cup softened butter

Cut in:

1 cup grated cheddar cheese


6 tablespoons ice water, and shape into a ball.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. On a floured board, roll out to 1/4 inch thick. Cut strips 12 inches long and 1/2 inch wide to make 12 sticks. (Or cut 6 inches long--to make 24 sticks.) On an ungreased cookie sheet, twist two sticks together--turning 4 or 5 times--and press ends flat. Bake 15 minutes or until lightly brown.


May be frozen and reheated at 300 degrees.

These are nice to serve as a first course with soup--or along with dinner during the week of Passover, when unleavened bread is required. They're awesome anytime!
