Let it be a game night or a kids party these simple to make cheese straws must be at the top of the party snack list. Easy and tasty!
As I currently have some time, I was surfing on the internet yesterday. On the lookout for new, interesting tips, inspiring dishes that I’ve never used before, to impress my family with. Hunting for quite some time yet could not find lots of interesting stuff. Right before I wanted to give up on it, I stumbled on this delightful and simple treat simply by chance. The dessert seemed so delicious on its photos, it called for fast actions.
It had been easy to imagine the way it is created, its taste and how much boyfriend will probably want it. Mind you, it is very simple to please the man when it comes to cakes. Anyways, I visited the blog: Suncakemom and then followed the step-by-step instuctions which were coupled with wonderful pics of the process. It really makes life much easier. I can imagine that it’s a slight effort to shoot photographs in the midst of baking in the kitchen because you most often have sticky hands so I really appreciate the effort and time she placed in to make this post .
Having said that I am encouraged to present my very own recipe in the same way. Many thanks the thought.
I was fine tuning the original recipe to make it for the taste of my loved ones. I must tell you that it was an awesome success. They prized the taste, the consistency and enjoyed having a treat like this in the middle of a busy week. They quite simply requested more, a lot more. Thus the next time I am not going to commit the same miscalculation. I’m likely to multiply the volume .
cheese straws recipe first posted on suncakemom.
Mix flour in a medium bowl with salt and the baking powder.
Add the diced room temperature butter, yogurt and work it together with the flour by hand. The texture should look like breadcrumbs.
Stir in the egg and add a 3 -4 tablespoons of water to the mixture if necessary. Flour water content changes by the day so add water carefully as we don’t want to work with an overly sticky dough.
Knead it into a firm dough then roll it out the dough to a thin squarish shape.
Cut between quarter and a half inch (1cm) wide strips out of the the square (vertically). Then cut the square in half (horizontally).
Preheat oven to 356°F / 180°C
Cover tray with baking sheet. It’s not essential but it will ensure that the dough won’t stick to the tray.
Transfer strips carefully onto the tray.
Sprinkle grated cheese on each straw. (If we’re making the wiggly worms for kids party, it’s time to put raisin eyes at the end of the cheese covered straws too.)
Put tray into the preheated oven and bake cheese straws for 10-15 minutes, until crisp.
Take tray out when cheese melted and golden brown then leave to cool on the tray.
