These make a great hors d' oeuvre. They almost taste like cheese straws but with a crunch.

My friend, Mary Lou, shared this recipe with me about 30 years ago and I have been making them ever since.

How to Make Cheese Straw Cookies

Step-by-Step

  • 1Grate the cold block of cheddar cheese and the cold sticks of butter into the same large bowl. Let this come to room temperature to soften.
    NOTE: I have also used pre-shredded cheese, put it in a bowl along with the butter and let it come to room temperature. Once it has softened I start mixing in the remaining ingredients. This works just as well.
  • 2Form several rolls of dough. Pinch off small pieces and form into quarter-sized balls. Place onto a lightly greased cookie sheet (I line mine with foil or parchment paper) then flatted each ball with a fork.
  • 3Bake for approximately 15 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned. Do not over bake do they will be too hard.
