Cheese and Marmite Straws...
Makes approx 24 straws
200g grated Cathedral City Mature
200g cold butter, diced
A pinch of paprika
Salt and black pepper to taste
1 egg, beaten
2 tablespoons of Marmite
Preheat the oven to gas mark 4, 375ºF or 180ºC (Fan-assisted 160ºC).
Using a food processor, blend the flour, butter, half the Cathedral City, paprika, salt and pepper into a fine crumbly mixture.
Add the egg and blend again until the mixture forms a soft dough (you may need to add a little water).
Allow to chill for 1/2 hour.
Roll the pastry out on a lightly floured surface
. Brush the top with Marmite (it may be easier to do this if the Marmite is slightly heated).
Sprinkle the remaining cheese over the pastry and cut the pastry into straws.
Bake on a greased baking tray for approximately 2 minutes or until they are golden.
Cool on a wire rack before eating.
