Cheese Straws

Pailles au Parmesan


Take for a quarter of a pound of puff paste, two ounces of grated Parmesan cheese, and a tiny dust of cayenne pepper; roll the cheese into the paste as if rolling in flour; roll it out thin and cut it in lengths of about four or five inches long and a quarter of an inch wide, twist each strip and press it on a well wetted baking tin, and bake in a moderate oven for ten to twelve minutes. Have some rings made with the same paste to hold the straws, and dish up on a dish-paper or napkin, and serve. These may be kept ready made and warmed up when required.
