Let it be a game night or a kids party these simple to make cheese straws must be at the top of the party snack list. Easy and tasty!
As I lately have a little time, I had been surfing on the web a few days ago. Trying to get fresh, stirring tips, inspirational recipes that I have never used before, to amaze my loved ones with. Searching for a while but could not find too many interesting stuff. Right before I thought to give up on it, I discovered this delightful and easy dessert by accident over Suncakemom. It looked so tempting
on its snapshot, it called for urgent actions.
It was easy to imagine how it is created, how it tastes and just how much my hubby might like it. Mind you, it is rather simple to keep happy him in terms of desserts. Yes, I’m a blessed one. Or possibly he is.Anyway, I visited the page and used the detailed instuctions that were combined with impressive images of the method. It just makes life much simpler. I could imagine that it’s a slight inconvenience to take snap shots down the middle of cooking in the kitchen as you typically have gross hands so I seriously appreciate the time and energy she devote for making this post and recipe conveniently implemented.
With that said I am encouraged presenting my very own dishes in a similar fashion. Thanks for the thought.
I had been fine tuning the main mixture to make it for the taste of my family. I have to say that it was an awesome outcome. They enjoyed the taste, the thickness and enjoyed having a sweet like this during a busy week. They quite simply demanded lots more, many more. Thus next time I am not going to make the same miscalculation. I’m going to twin the volume to get them pleased.
The easy cheese straws recipe is provided by SunCakeMom
Mix flour in a medium bowl with salt and the baking powder.
Add the diced room temperature butter, yogurt and work it together with the flour by hand. The texture should look like breadcrumbs.
Stir in the egg and add a 3 -4 tablespoons of water to the mixture if necessary. Flour water content changes by the day so add water carefully as we don’t want to work with an overly sticky dough.
Knead it into a firm dough then roll it out the dough to a thin squarish shape.
Cut between quarter and a half inch (1cm) wide strips out of the the square (vertically). Then cut the square in half (horizontally).
Preheat oven to 356°F / 180°C
Cover tray with baking sheet. It’s not essential but it will ensure that the dough won’t stick to the tray.
Transfer strips carefully onto the tray.
Sprinkle grated cheese on each straw. (If we’re making the wiggly worms for kids party, it’s time to put raisin eyes at the end of the cheese covered straws too.)
Put tray into the preheated oven and bake cheese straws for 10-15 minutes, until crisp.
Take tray out when cheese melted and golden brown then leave to cool on the tray.
