craig claiborne's southern cooking 
wings books 
 
8 Tbsp  butter
1/2 lb.  sharp cheddar cheese -- or blue cheese
1-3/4 cup  flour
  salt -- to taste
1/2 tsp  cayenne pepper -- more or less
1 tsp  worcestershire sauce
 
preheat oven to 300 degrees. 
 
put the butter and cheese in the container of a food processor. add the 
flour, salt, cayenne, and worcestershire. cover and blend thoroughly. if 
a food processor is not used, put the flour, salt and cayenne in a bowl. 
add the butter, cheese, and worcestershire, and using two knives or a 
pastry blender, blend thoroughly. 
use a cookie press outfitted with a houndstooth or star dispenser. push 
the dough out onto an ungreased baking sheet to make individual straws. 
or, if desired, roll the dough out to a 1/8-inch thickness and cut it 
into individual strips, which can be twisted if desired, or other 
shapes. arrange the pieces on 1 or 2 ungreased baking sheets. 
place the baking sheet or sheets in the oven and bake 20 to 25 minutes, 
or until the straws are crisp and lightly browned. if you wish a darker 
color let them cook longer. remove and let cool. makes about 6 dozen.
