Whilst on our way back from town the other day, SmallSmall spied the jaunty red awning of a certain High St baker, and asked for a cheese straw.
For some unknown reason, instead of saying “Yes” and handing over 60p an having a contented child (for five minutes), I responded with “Noooo, you don’t want one of those, we’ll go home and make some cheese straws”!. Which sounds great, but when you are 3, and you want a cheese straw, having to wait an hour or two to get one, is really not so great. Foolish mummy.
Anyway, we went home, and I did attempt to improvise cheese straws, all the while fending off repeated “Are they ready yet”s.
In short, these are not the sort of thing to attempt with a hungry and impatient 3 year old, but they are pretty yummy…
This is what you need:
This is what you do:
These are delicious, and taste “like the ones from the bakers”-high praise from the Smalls…!
I have frozen some too, and am pleased to report that they seem to withstand this well.
