How To Make Cheese Straws

These take me back many years. I don't care how old the recipe is, I still love them. In fact the recipe is so old you have to buy lard… Yep, I have just taken you right back to the 70’s and 80’s! I use parmesan cheese, because it has a strong flavour, but you could use a strong cheddar if you prefer.

  • 150g Cold lard cubed

  • 150g Cold butter cubed

  • 450g Plain flour

  • 150g Parmesan, grated

  • ½ Tsp Mustard powder

  • 1 Egg, beaten

  • Extra 3 Tbsp Parmesan grated

Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees centigrade.

Place the lard, butter and flour into a food processor and whizz until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs, then stir in the 150g parmesan cheese and the mustard powder.

Add around 3 tbsp of iced water to bring it together into a firm dough, then wrap in clingfilm and chill in the fridge for 20 minutes.

Roll out the pastry to ½cm thick, then brush with egg and sprinkle with the 3 tbsp of parmesan. Cut into rectangular strips 1cm wide and arrange on a lightly greased baking tray. I even twist them and make them curly, or you can leave them straight.

Bake for about 15–20 minutes, then cool briefly on a rack to cool and go firm.
