Very flavorful little tasties, these, & since there were only the two of us when I made them, they managed to last a little while! As you say, they're great all on their own, but wonderful with a dip, too! Thanks for the very nice recipe! {Made & reviewed for one of my adopted chefs in this Spring's Pick A Chef event]

When I made these I could not keep together so added water and that did the trick. Milk would work too. I used smoked cheddar. Very similar to a cracker. Really depends upon how thick it is how long it needs to be oven. Can see that this is versatile -could use any seasoning that you like-cumin, thyme, etc. You could even sprinkle with some parmesan or different salts. And could I suppose shape them differently with cutters. Made for PAC Fall 2011. Thank you ValkyrieQueen for posting.

My fiancé has been begging me to make cheddar straws for years and I finally got round to it and made these! Made them exactly as the recipe stated and the dough came together great. I don't have a cookie press, so I rolled out the dough and cut them into thin strips with a pizza wheel. So more-ish, we could not stop eating them!

I'll never buy store-bought cheese straws again. This was fantastic and easy! Made exactly per the recipe except increased the cayenne pepper a bit to give them a real nice "bite" in the aftertaste (we like extra spicy). I thought the dough seemed a bit dry once mixed, but put it in a cookie press and squeezed out long "straws" and they were perfect. Served as an appetizer at a Christmas gathering and they were a big hit! Will be making this often. Want to try with swiss, gouda, parmesan, etc. Could create a lot of variations. Great! Thanks for sharing!
