Recipe: Game Day Cheese Straws

Cheese Straws

Need a quick, easy, crowd pleasing appetizer with no baking experience required?  These scrumptious cheese straws are sure to fit the bill. With just five common ingredients, you are looking at 5 minutes prep time, 15 minutes in the oven, taste… priceless.


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 tbsp BBQ powdered seasoning, or seasoning of your choice (I have used cajun and ranch and loved them both)
  • 1 1/2 tbsp heavy whipping cream
  • 3/4 stick unsalted butter – sliced into pieces 1/4 inch or so thick


Place ingredients into food processor and mix, or mix by hand into a dough.  Roll out into sheet 1/4 inch thick on flour coated parchment paper lined cookie sheet.  Don’t over knead or roll as the straws won’t be as flaky.  Cut into long straws about 1/2 inch wide.  Bake in preheated oven for 15-18 min at 350.

Salt and pepper to taste.  Serve with ranch dressing or you choice of condiments!
