Homemade Cheese Twists Recipe, or Cheese Straws, made from scratch with a few simple ingredients, deliciously golden and divinely cheesy tasting. The best party food for absolutely every occasion. No need to buy the ready-made ones, these cheese twists are the best!  I used cheddar cheese and parmesan cheese for a distinct sharp kick, and they were gone so quickly.

  • 150 g plain flour
  • 75 g salted butter
  • 1 egg
  • 100 g grated cheddar cheese
  • 2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tbsp milk
  1. In a bowl, sift the flour, add the butter and use your fingertips to rub them together until they resemble breadcrumbs.

  2. Add the grated cheeses, egg and milk, and knead into a dough.

  3. Chill for 15 minutes.

  4. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius (350 Fahrenheit).

  5. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough to a thickness of 1cm (1/2 inch).

  6. Cut strips out of the dough, then twist them as you arrange them on the baking tray lined with non-stick paper.

  7. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden.
