Senate Cheese Straws

I am in the process of using things up in my freezer since I defrosted it last week. I ran across a block of sharp cheddar cheese that I had bought but never used. I thought of this recipe and how yummy it is. I hope that you will give it a go.

Senate Cheese Straws
1 lb. sharp cheddar cheese
1 3/4 cup flour
1 tsp. flour
1/4 - 1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/4 lb. butter
Finely grate the cheese, then combine with the other ingredients and beat until creamy, adding a few drops of water if necessary to form a firm dough. Divide dough in half. Roll each section 1/4 inch thick. Cut into strips about 6" x 3/8". Place on ungreased cookie sheet and chill in freezer for 15 minutes or longer to maintain shape. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes. Makes 5-6 dozen.
