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-1-SunCakeMomCheese 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

  • 15 tablespoon / 225g Butter
  • 7 oz / 200g Cheese (Cheddar, Gouda, Edam)
  • 1 Egg
  • ½ cup / 100 ml Yogurt
