      These are wonderful! They are a little hard to knead, but don't give up! The dough all comes together pretty quickly! We did have to add a few tsp. of cold water. My guests just gobbled them up! They are very cheesy, and the coarse salt sprinkled on is a nice touch! This makes ALOT of straws, by the way! Two large cookie sheets full! One worth trying!

      great recipe. Found the dough was too dry. So I added a touch of water. Easy and fast to prepare. We served it with pumpkin soup as a side.
