Happy Thanksgiving! Cheese straws are really popular here in the UK. Yours look delicious! We’re doing our Thanksgiving tomorrow. Since there’s no day off here, it just seemed easier. Looking forward to December 1–very intrigued!
Happy Thanksgiving, Tim! The cheese straws look and sound delish! I wish you lots of wonderful, happy memories in your new home! I must say, I made a turkey this year that just might make a believer out of you….. :)
Hi Tim – I hope you had a wonderful holiday. Haven’t stopped by you site in a few days, and I feel like I’ve been away for ages! Having fun catching up on your posts. The cheese & butter to flour ratio of these straws is so high, I’ll definitely have to save them for a special occasion. ;)
This is my first time commenting even though I’ve been reading your blog for some time. I made the cheese straws last night for my book club. They were a huge hit!! Everyone loved them, thanks for sharing.
Just made recipe from Gourmet 2002 and this one. My teen daughters laughed at my contribution to the holiday potluck. But eat them they did! One comment was “they taste like goldfish”. Admit it, goldfish are great. Used extra sharp white, added paprika instead of cayenne for the small fry. Added white pepper just bcs I like it.
My mother has made a variation of these since the 50’s. She uses a cookie press to shape them (not electric-50’s era manual).They are unique, pretty and always a hit. Love your blog. When I want something different, classy yet completely doable, I come here to see what you are cooking.
