Cheese Straws are a highly addictive southern classic. Crispy and buttery, Southern Cheese Straws are amazing when paired with a dry sherry, or just by themselves. It’s impossible to eat just one!
Ingredients for Southern Cheese Straws:
The ingredients for these delectable morsels include unsalted butter, cheddar cheese, baking powder, salt, cayenne pepper, and all-purpose flour.
Making the Southern Cheese Straws:
I added room temperature unsalted butter and room temperature shredded cheddar cheese to a mixing bowl, and beat them on high for several minutes until the cheese was fully incorporated into the butter. Then, I added the baking powder, salt, and cayenne pepper, and beat the mixture until everything was fully mixed.
Next, I added the flour, and beat the mixture on medium for about 5 minutes until it was smooth.
I transferred the mixture to a piping bag fitted with a 1M star tip, and piped 3-inch cheese straws onto a parchment lined baking pan.
Into a 350° F oven the cheese straws went for about 15 minutes until they were golden brown. After removing the cheese straws from the oven, I transferred them to a wire rack so that they could cool completely.
I ended up with about 12-dozen incredibly delicious Southern Cheese Straws. Yum!
