Cheese Straws

This recipe comes from a friend at a LSU tailgating party.  They were served and I asked for the recipe. They are light and crispy.
  • 2 C. flour, sifted
  • 2 C. Rice Krispies
  • 2 C. Sharp Cheddar cheese, finely shredded
  • 2 sticks of butter, softened
  • ¼ t. cayenne pepper
  • 1 t. salt
  • 1 t. garlic powder
  • 1 t. Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. In a large bowl, mix the softened butter with the cayenne, salt, garlic powder, and Tony’s
  3. Add the flour, then the Rice Krispies and the cheese
  4. Kneed the mixture together
  5. Roll into balls about an inch in diameter
  6. Place on cookie sheets and bake for 10 minutes
  7. Remove from the oven and press each ball with a fork
  8. Return to the oven for 5 minutes
  9. Remove from oven and move each to a cooling rack
 Tips and Tricks:
  • These are a great light appetizer when serving cocktails.
  • These store well for several days in a plastic container.
