Spicy Cheese Straws – Part II
Remember my Spicy Cheese Straws? The ones that are served like an Ultimate Fighting Champion? That’s right … those.
These were requested by the mom-to-be at the baby shower. Well, I couldn’t use the same recipe TWICE, now could I? It’s like re-wearing a prom dress. The agony. So, I spiced it up (literally) with some pepper jack. Here’s how it went down.
Pepper Jack Cheese Straws
- 1 1/2 cups of shredded pepper jack cheese
- 3/4 cup of flour
- 1/4 cup of butter (sliced into four pieces)
- 1 tablespoon of half and half
- 1 tablespoon of Frank’s Hot Sauce
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine cheese, flour and butter in a food processor. Pulse until mixture is grainy. Add half and half and hot sauce. Pulse until mixture forms a dough ball.
Stuff the dough into a cookie press. Press wafers onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 10-12 minutes until edges are brown at 350 degrees.
