Cheddar Straws

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by ValkyrieQueen

A staple to have around the house. My friends and family say they are good enough to eat alone, excellent with dip as an appetizer, or used to accompany a bowl of soup or stew. Generally they evaporate or disappear before everyone ever gets their fill of them. We like extra sharp cheddar the best. We've tried Colby, Monterey Jack, and Swiss with good results as well

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]
