Pastry Cheese Straws
Makes 5 to 10 servings
Time: 30 minutes
This is more complicated than the preceding recipe, but it makes a superior cheese straw, one that resembles puff pastry in its flakiness.
1 recipe Generous Pie Shell (will post later) (see step 1)
1-1/2 C freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1. Make the pastry, incorporating about � C grated cheese into it. Roll it out until it is about � inch thick, then sprinkle it with another � C cheese. Fold the dough in half and press the edges together. Sprinkle with half the remaining cheese, then repeat the rolling folding process; press the edges together again. Repeat, using the remaining cheese. (You may prepare the recipe in advance up to this point; wrap well in plastic and refrigerate for up to 2 days before proceeding.) 2. Finally, roll out into a rectangle about � inch thick. Cut into strips as long as you like and about � inch wide. Place on a lightly buttered (or oiled) baking sheet and, if time allows, chill for 1 hour. 3. Preheat the oven to 450�F. Bake the straws until golden brown, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve warm (they cool off almost instantly), or at room temperature.
