Cheese Straws…

Hello, happy Saturday.

Planning a party or a nice weekend treat?

Cheese straws anyone?

Aww, these always remind me of my Grandma.

She always made me these because she knew how much I loved them.

In fact, the last time I had any was before she died and made by her. Happy days…

Cheese Straws the perfect weekend snack, party for or treat. Now to make some myself.

Preparation Time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes

 Makes: 14

How To Make Cheese Straws:


  • 375g ready-made puff pastry
  • Plain flour, for dusting
  • 1 tbsp English mustard
  • 100g Cathedral City Mature Cheddar, grated
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten

How To Make:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/200F/Gas Mark 6.
  2. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
  3. Roll the pastry out, on a lightly floured work surface, into a large rectangle around 0.5cm thick.
  4. Turn the pastry so that the longest side is facing you, spread the mustard evenly on the pastry, sprinkle with the Cathedral City Mature Cheddar and season with plenty of black pepper.
  5. Cut the pastry into long strips. Carefully twist each piece of pastry 4 or 5 times so it looks like a curly straw, then place on the baking tray.
  6. Chill the pastry twists in the fridge for 15-20 minutes.
  7. Brush the Cathedral City Mature straws with the beaten egg.
  8. Bake them for 20-25 minutes, or until the pastry is well risen and golden brown.
