Since my earliest childhood, I have had what amounts to a passion for cheese straws, particularly those with a tangy bite that comes not only from the cheese but from a touch or more of cayenne. The source of the recipe given here for those straws is Charlie Swayze, Sr., a family friend of many years from Greenwood, Mississippi.
