Cheese Straws Recipe: How To Make Homemade Cheese Straws

This cheese straws recipe is really easy to make and requires only a handful of ingredients. I love it when you only need a few things to get the job done. Whenever I find something that needs 20+ items, I usually get turned off by the shopping list. If I don’t have the majority of the goods at home, then Mama isn’t making it! Am I right? My family loves cheese straws because they are a really fun appetizer and quick to whip together. We usually eat it with a side of flavorful marinara, but can absolutely eat them on their own as well. It all depends on what kind of day we are having. Either way, I have a feeing this Cheese Straws recipe is going to become a household favorite for you as well!

Preheat oven to 425˚

  1. Open pastry sheet and place the half that was inside the fold face down on a piece of wax paper.
  2. Sprinkle ½ cup of the Parmesan over the pastry sheet. Be sure to get all the way to the edges.
  3. Season with half of the Garlic salt and Black Pepper.
  4. Place another sheet of wax paper over the pastry sheet and using light pressure with a rolling pin slightly work the cheese into the pastry sheet.
  5. Keeping the wax paper in place turn the pastry sheet over and repeat the process. Peel the paper slowly. If it sticks, just scrape the dough down with your finger or a knife as you peel it.
  6. Repeat the process with the cheese, seasoning and rolling.
  7. Remove the top piece of wax paper and using a pizza wheel cut the sheet into ½- ¾ inch strips.
  8. Pick up the end of a straw and as you peel it off the paper twist it. You should get about 4 twists. Place on nonstick cookie sheet or parchment lined baking pan.
  9. As the cheese falls off just pick it up and lightly push it on the next strips.
  10. Bake at 425˚ until golden brown and delicious, 8-10 minutes.
