Sugar free recipe
/ 350g Flour
/ 225g Butter
room temperature, diced
/ 100 ml Yogurt
/ 200g Cheese
Cheddar, Gouda, Edam... (grated)
Mix flour in a medium bowl with salt and the baking powder.
Add the diced room temperature butter, yogurt and work it together with the flour by hand. The texture should look like breadcrumbs.
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.
Knead it into a firm dough then roll it out the dough to a thin squarish shape.
Cut between quarter and a half inch (1cm) wide strips out of the the square (vertically). Then cut the square in half (horizontally).
Preheat oven to 356°F / 180°C
Cover tray with baking sheet. It's not essential but it will ensure that the dough won't stick to the tray.
Transfer strips carefully onto the tray.
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.)
Put tray into the preheated oven and bake cheese straws for 10-15 minutes, until crisp.
Take tray out when cheese melted and golden brown then leave to cool on the tray.
