    Lusil's Note:

    There are many recipes out there for cheese straws, but I had to post Grandma's recipe. These were a staple at her house and we couldn't wait to devour them when we went for a visit.

      I used this recipe to make 5 dozen cheese straws for a wedding shower. Huge success! Instead of 3 tsps water, I substitued Tabasco. Instead of paprika, I used Cayenne pepper. This gives it the "kick" it needed. Men seem to prefer these hotter. I used a previous reviewer's idea about rolling it out and slicing like cookies. Then I pressed a fork down to imprint it cross-cross.

      I made this into 36 little rounds with a fluted biscuit cutter. I used cayenne pepper and added a whole egg with the water to bind the dough. They turned out very yummy indeed. Thanks for sharing.

      These are delicious! I made the straws using a cookie press with the star disc, and didn't have to chill the dough. Thanks so much..
