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.
