Cheese Straws a La Nita
 
2 cup  grated sharp cheddar cheese*, room temperature
1/2 cup  unsalted butter, room temperature
2 cup  sifted flour
1/2 to 1 tsp  salt (to taste)
1/4 tsp  garlic powder (optional)
1/2 tsp  paprika
pinch  of red pepper or cayenne (optional)
  or,
3 or 4   drops lea & perrins worcestershire sauce
 
preheat oven to 350 degrees f. 
 
cream together cheese and butter. combine flour, salt, garlic powder 
(optional), paprika, pepper (optional). add flour mixture to cheese and 
butter mixture. mix until creamy. blend in worcestershire sauce, if using. 
use the small star, or the 1 1/2 inch ribbon disk on a cookie press to 
make straws. optionally, place mixture in a ziplock bag, press out air and 
seal. cut off a very tiny corner and press mixture out in short strips on 
a baking sheet, press down on strips with a fork. bake 10 to 15 minutes, 
on ungreased baking sheet. watch very closely or they will brown too much 
or burn. for a change, sprinkle caraway seed, sesame seed, poppy seed, 
etc., over strips before baking. makes about 50 cheese straws. handle 
carefully as they break easily. store in an airtight container. 
 
* i prefer kraft sharp cheese
