    This is a great snack to have the same day it is made. However, I put some into plastic baggies and they did not taste the same the next day. Will make again, but only if they will be eaten that day.

    We love this recipe so much we had to triple the ingredients. This will be a recipe that we want to share with our family as a "must have." I think the kids will have fun making them and sharing them with their friends.

    I thought this recipe was so-so. My fiance thought this recipe was great and it tasted like a "grown up Cheez-it." I did not use a food processor for this recipe - instead, I used a pastry cutter. I felt like the amount of half and half left the batter a bit dry, so I added some more. All in all, it was fairly easy to make and is something to keep in mind if I were to serve an appetizer of if they'd be a nice compliment to a soup (tomato, perhaps?).

    The Cheese Straws are excellent. I would recommend using more red pepper flakes though.

    I changed this recipe a bit. I added 1 tsp of fresh finely minced rosemary and 1 tsp of crushed chilli pepper flakes and ground them up in the food processor with the flour prior to adding the rest of the ingredients. I used MILK instead of half and half. I also baked them for an additional 5 minutes using a convection oven. They turned out crispier and very flavorful. I served them at a BBQ and everyone loved them.
