Homemade Cheese Straws

Cheese straws are top tier party nibbles especially when they're homemade...


80g Plain flour
40g Butter
60g Cheddar cheese
1 Egg


Preheat the oven to 180C or 160C for fan assisted ovens and grease a baking tray with coconut oil.

Sift the flour into a mixing bowl and rub the butter into the flour until a breadcrumb texture forms then add the grated cheese and mix.

In a jug, beat the egg and add half to the mixture. Stir until the mixture starts to come together, then work into a ball.

Use a clean work surface that's been lightly dusted with flour to roll out the pastry into a rectangle around 3mm thick. Cut into straws by cutting width-ways (5mm wide).

Twist each straw slightly, place on to the prepared baking tray with space between each straw, sprinkle with cheese and bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown. It's important to leave them to cool straight away so they keep their shape. Store in an air tight container.
