Cheese straws

This morning I was inspired by the GBBO repeat on BBC1 to bake again. I decided to make the cheese straws from the old Be-Ro flour cookbook we've had longer than I can remember. 

200g self raising flour
two pinches of salt
1 tsp mustard powder
100g butter
150g mature cheddar cheese, grated 
2 eggs
some extra cheese to melt on top
1. Put the flour, salt & mustard powder in a bowl. Rub in the butter until it resembles breadcrumb. Add the grated cheese. 
2. Use the egg to combine the mixture into a rough dough.
3. Roll out on a floured surface and cut into strips. Put on a baking tray, lined with greaseproof paper then sprinkle the extra cheese over the top. Bake at 160 for 20 minutes until golden brown.

Ta da!

And there you are. A wonderful brunchy, lunchy, elevenses treat! 

I'd like to wish you a very happy new year & here's to a wonderful 2013 filled with love, joy, magick & LOTS of baking X Bo
