Cayenne Cheese Straws

  • 1/4 pound flour
  • 2 ounce butter
  • 2 ounce Parmesan Cheese
  • A pinch of Salt
  • A little cayenne
  • 1 egg (yolk)
Mix into a paste with the yolk of an egg. Roll out to the thickness of a silver quarter, about for or five inches long; cut into strips about a third of an inch wide, twist them as you would a paper spill, and lay them on a baking sheet sdelicately floured. Bake in a oven heated to 350F until crisp, but they must not be the least brown. If put away in a tin, these cheese straws will keep a long time. Serve cold, piled tastefully on a glass dish. You can make the straws of remnants of puff-pastry, rolling in the grated cheese.
