Absolutely one of our favorites, these are easy to make and tasty as can be. They're even great for snack attacks 'cause they don't have any preservatives!

What You'll Need:
  • 4 cups (16 ounces) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients.
     
  2. Using your hands, knead well until a soft dough forms. Roll dough out on a lightly floured surface to a 1/4-inch thickness. Cut into 1/2- x 3- inch strips. Place on rimmed baking sheets that have been coated with cooking spray.
     
  3. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, or until light golden. Serve warm, or allow to cool completely then place in an airtight container until ready to use.

This is a wonderful recipe, been using this since the 60's. It's addictive! I place the dough in my cookie press which makes for very pretty cheese straws.

Don't put the recipe up until the pic is ready!

Husky Roasted Corn

Native Americans cooked their corn right in the husks over an open fire, and we think their idea is still best, 'cause it helps bring out flavors you can only get from roasting. We love making our Husky Roasted Corn right on the grill in the summer, and in our ovens when it's cooler out!
