Cheese Straws


by: Sara Joe

Once you've made puff pastry dough, you can throw together these straws in just a few minutes. If you have puff pastry trimmings, this is a perfect use for them. If you're working in a hot kitchen, make the cheese straws before you preheat the oven and keep them in the freezer until you are ready to bake them.
