Use a cookie press fitted with a bar-shaped disk to shape dough into 2 1/2-inch straws. Or divide dough into fourths, and roll each portion into a 1/4-inch thick rectangle on floured wax paper. Cut into 2- X 1/2-inch strips with a knife or pastry wheel and twist the cheese straws. Place on ungreased baking sheets.
Bake at 375 F. for 8 to 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Transfer to wire racks to cool.
