Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 20 mins
Servings 6


  • Bowl
  • Cheese grater
  • Butter knife


  • 100 grams grated tasty cheese (Colby works well too)
  • 80 grams grated butter
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup standard flour
  • cold tap water


  • Place all the ingredients in a bowl.
  • Gradually add cold tap water until a soft dough forms.
  • Turn out onto a floured surface and gently shape into a rectangle. Trim the edges to make a straight line (these pieces can be re-rolled).
  • Roll out until the dough is about 5mm in thickness. 
  • Cut into strips and bake on a lined tray with edges (the butter and cheese to melt and create a mess). 
  • Bake at 200 until golden and cheesy.
  • Once out of the oven - cool the cheese straws on a layer of paper towels.
