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!
The ingredients for these delectable morsels include unsalted butter, cheddar cheese, baking powder, salt, cayenne pepper, and all purpose flour.
Making the 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.
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.
