1/3 cup butter or margarine, at room temperature
1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese (2 1/2 oz.)
1 large egg
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons finely chopped almonds


1. In a bowl, with a mixer on high speed, beat butter and cheese until creamy. Add egg; beat until well blended. Stir in flour, then beat until well blended.

2. Scrape dough into a cookie press fitted with a rosette or star-shaped tip (1/2 in. across widest dimension). Press dough through tip in straight lines 6 to 8 inches long onto 12- by 15-inch baking sheets (you'll need two), spacing about 1 1/2 inches apart. Sprinkle spritz straws with almonds.

3. Bake in a 350° regular or 325° convection oven until straws are golden brown, 12 to 19 minutes, switching pan positions halfway through baking. With a wide spatula, transfer straws to racks to cool. Serve warm or cool.
