Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 400°F. In a food processor, process cheese and butter until smooth and creamy, stopping machine and scraping down sides of bowl as needed. Add flour, salt and cayenne and pulse until mixture forms a soft, pliable dough.

  • Transfer dough to a large pastry bag fitted with a star tip and pipe 3-inch-long straws onto ungreased baking sheets. Alternatively, place dough in a large ziplock bag, snip off a corner and pipe 3-inch or longer straws (the latter will yield fewer straws) and twist decoratively. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.

  • Bake until straws are lightly browned around edges, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool on baking sheets.
