Best Ever Easy Cheese Straws Recipe

Let it be a game night or a kids party these simple to make cheese straws must be at the top of the party snack list. Easy and tasty!

Cheese straws are truly perfect to serve for game nights when we want to enjoy matches and funnel the over-excitement by nibbling on something delicious and gulping it down with some summer drink. So when we are thinking about healthy super bowl recipes to snack, this should come up right around the cheese scone and cheese stuffed crescent roll.
Not only that, but cheese straws are also ideal for kids parties if we fancy serving something homemade savory snack for the children or their parents.

For kids parties, we can simply modify the shape of the straws, making them wavy and stick two raisins as eyes at one of the ends of the straws so they look like little wiggly worms. Children go completely berserk for them.

Ingredients

  • 3 cup / 350g Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 teaspoon Baking powder
  • 15 tablespoon / 225g Butter (room temperature, diced)
  • ½ cup / 100 ml Yogurt
  • 1 Egg
  • 7 oz / 200g Cheese (Cheddar, Gouda, Edam…) (grated)

How to make Cheese straws

  1. Mix flour in a medium bowl with salt and the baking powder.
  2. Add the diced room temperature butter, yogurt and work it together with the flour by hand. The texture should look like breadcrumbs.
  3. Stir in the egg and add a 3 -4 tablespoons of water to the mixture if necessary. Flour water content changes by the day so add water carefully as we don’t want to work with an overly sticky dough.
  4. Knead it into a firm dough then roll it out the dough to a thin squarish shape.
  5. Cut between quarter and a half inch (1cm) wide strips out of the the square (vertically). Then cut the square in half (horizontally).Cheese-straws-process-5-SunCakeMom
  6. Preheat oven to 356°F / 180°C
  7. Cover tray with baking sheet. It’s not essential but it will ensure that the dough won’t stick to the tray.
  8. Transfer strips carefully onto the tray.Cheese-straws-process-1-SunCakeMom
  9. Sprinkle grated cheese on each straw. (If we’re making the wiggly worms for kids party, it’s time to put raisin eyes at the end of the cheese covered straws too.)Cheese-straws-process-6-SunCakeMom
  10. Put tray into the preheated oven and bake cheese straws for 10-15 minutes, until crisp.
  11. Take tray out when cheese melted and golden brown then leave to cool on the tray.Cheese-straws-4-SunCakeMom
