I have made a small batch of cheese straws now and the kids are in the middle of eating their second one so I am guessing that they are a success and that I need to make a bigger batch to freeze for school dinners.
The recipe that I used was:
150g Self raising flour
Instructions for Cheese Straws
This is the bit where you should really cut into strips of dough for the ‘straws’ but as ours were for the kids lunchboxes, we decided to use some of our cookie cutters and make cheesey shapes.
When you have your straws or shapes, use the egg mixture you saved and brush each shape and then sprinkle the shapes with the leftover cheese. I used greasproof paper to put mine on to make sure that they didn’t stick when they were done.
