Cheese straws

Cheese straws are among the simplest things you can make and they taste amazing!

50g self-raising flour
pinch cayenne pepper
25g softened butter
100g finely grated mature cheddar

Preheat the oven to 200C


Mix all ingredients together (in a big bowl or in a food processor). Knead it all together lightly but don't over work the mixture.

Lightly flour a surface and roll it out until it's about as thick as a pound coin.

Cut into short slim strips and put on a non-stick, greased or lined tray and bake in the oven for 10 minutes.
