Ingredients

375g plain flour

225g cold butter, cut into small squares

Pinch salt

2 medium egg yolks

200g block of Dubliner Vintage Cheese, grated

Pinch mustard powder (optional)

Pinch cayenne pepper (optional)

Directions

Using a food processor (with a dough hook attachment), mix the plain flour, salt and butter. Alternatively, you can do this by hand by rubbing the butter between your fingertips

When the mixture looks like breadcrumbs, mix in the grated cheese and egg yolks

For a little kick, add in the cayenne pepper and mustard powder

Add in 4 tablespoons of cold water

Continue mixing until you have a firm dough consistency

Wrap the dough in clingfilm and leave in fridge for half an hour

Preheat the oven to 180C

Remove clingfilm and roll out dough to a square shape approx 10mm thickness

Cut the square in half and then cut each half into approx 1cm wide strips

Using a spatula, place the strips onto a flat baking sheet (lined with parchment paper)

Bake for 10-15 mins until crisp and golden brown

Remove from oven and leave on tray to cool a little before transferring to wire rack

Can be stored in a sealed container (with some parchment paper) and will stay fresh for 4 days

When baked and cooled, the cheese straws can be frozen to be enjoyed at a later date
