6.75 ounces all-purpose flour (about 1 1/2 cups)
1/4 cup chilled butter, cut into small pieces
1 cup (4 ounces) crumbled blue cheese
1/3 cup finely chopped chives
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 to 2 tablespoons cold water


1. Weigh or lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour and butter in a food processor; pulse to blend. Add cheese, chives, salt, and pepper; pulse until mixture resembles coarse meal. Drizzle water into flour mixture until dough forms a ball. Roll dough into a 16 x 8-inch rectangle. Wrap dough in plastic wrap; refrigerate 4 hours or until firm.

2. Preheat oven to 350°.

3. Cut dough crosswise into 64 (1/4-inch-wide) slices. Place 1/2 inch apart on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned. Cool straws completely on wire racks.
