Cheese Straws

cheese strawsAfter the success of the Little Golden Men, I thought I would try a different recipe and found  these on mumsnet.  They were ok (perhaps subbing mustard for cayenne made the difference?) , but I think I will stick to my little men.


  • 50g self-raising flour
  • pinch cayenne (I didn’t have any, so used mustard instead)
  • 25g softened butter
  • 80g finely grated red leicester
  • 20g freshly grated parmesan


  1. Preheat oven to 200C/gas mark 6Mix all ingredients together, either by hand or in a food processor. It might look crumbly but that’s OK. Knead it all together.
  2. Roll it out quite thinly on a floured board. Cut into short strips or stamp out into star shapes with a star-shaped cookie cutter and put on a non-stick, greased or lined tray in the oven for 10 minutes (check after 8)
  3. Cool cheese straws on a wire rack.
