Cardamom Cheddar Straws




Difficulty:Easy
Prep Time:60 Minutes
Cook Time:15 Minutes
Serves:4

Nutritional Information

Cheese straws are a great snack anytime.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, plus more for rolling
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • Large pinch of salt
  • 1/3 stick cold unsalted butter, diced
  • 3 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (1 cup)
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon milk
  • 1 large egg

Directions

  • 1. In a food processor, pulse the 1/2 cup of flour with the cardamom and salt. Add the butter and pulse until it is the size of small peas. Add the cheddar and 1 teaspoon of the milk and pulse just until the dough comes together. Scrape the dough onto a work surface and knead a few times until smooth. Form the dough into a disk, wrap it in plastic and refrigerate until firm, about 30 minutes.
  • 2. Preheat the Egg to 350°with platesetter for indirect heat. Line two large rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper. In a small bowl, beat the egg with the remaining 1 tablespoon of milk. On a lightly floured work surface, roll out the dough to a 10-by-9-inch rectangle, 1/4 inch thick. Cut the dough lengthwise into 1/4-inch-wide straws.
  • 3. Place the straws on the prepared baking sheets, about 1/2 inch apart. Brush the straws with the egg wash. Bake for about 15 minutes, until golden brown, rotating the pans halfway through. Let cool on the baking sheets until crisp, about 10 minutes, before serving.
