9780062371225 (1)Cheese Straws

Pre-heat the oven to 390 degrees. Butter and line a baking tray.
Combine 120g of soft butter with 450g of cheese (I KNOW it’s a lot. These are for sharing and parties and things. I like extra-mature cheddar but any hard cheese will do—the Dutch ones are fine. Nothing soft or blue).

Add:
250g of flour
1 tsp. of salt
Chili flakes to your taste
Plenty of pepper
1 tsp. of baking powder

Roll into plasticine snakes, just like at primary school. Size and dimension are up to you, but if they’re too thick they will taste a bit stodgy.
Bake for 15 minutes or until crunchy.
