Dill Cheese Straws
Makes 32
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1½ cups shredded white Cheddar cheese
  • ¼ cup minced fresh dill
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, cheese, dill, salt, baking powder, garlic powder, and red pepper. In a medium bowl, whisk together butter and eggs. Gently stir egg mixture into flour mixture just until combined.
  3. Turn out dough onto a lightly floured surface, and gently knead 3 to 4 times. Roll dough into a 12-inch square, about ¼ inch thick. Using a sharp knife or a pizza cutter, cut dough in half vertically; you should have 2 (12x6-inch) rectangles. Cut each dough piece horizontally into ¾-inch-wide strips; you should have 32 (6x¾-inch) strips. Transfer dough strips to prepared pans.
  4. Bake until golden brown, about 20 minutes. Let cool completely on pan on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
