Directions

  1. Mix into a paste with the yolk of an egg.
  2. Roll out to the thickness of a silver quarter, about four or five inches long; cut into strips about a third of an inch wide, twist
  3. them as you would a paper spill, and lay them on a baking-sheet slightly floured.
  4. Bake in a moderate oven until crisp, but they must not be the least brown.
  5. If put away in a tin, these cheese straws will keep a long time.
  6. Serve cold, piled tastefully on a glass dish.
  7. You can make the straws of remnants of puff-pastry, rolling in the grated cheese.
  8. Cooking time is an estimate, watch carefully.
