Baked Cream Cheese Straws

Nice one to use all the nice leftover cheeses in your fridge.


2 cups all-purpose flour

1 Tbl baking powder

- 3/4 tsp salt

60g butter - cubed

3 heaped tablespoons of cream cheese

1/2 cup milk

1 cup White Cheddar

1 cup of Cheddar


1. Preheat your oven to 180°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.

2. In a bowl sift together the flour, baking powder & salt.

3. Then rub the butter into the flour mixture using your fingertips until it resembles breadcrumbs.

4. Add the cream cheese & once again use your fingertips to rub it into the flour.

5. Add the milk & mix to form a soft dough.

6. Lightly flour a surface & decant your dough onto it. Knead it slightly then form a ball. Using a rolling pin roll the dough into a rectangular shape measuring about 25 x 35cm big & about 4mm thick.

7. Sprinkle 1 cup of cheese over the surface & then fold one half of the pastry over the other half (covering the cheese) before rolling it out again to form a ±25 x 35cm big rectangle. Sprinkle the 2nd cup of cheese over the surface, fold it over for a 2nd time & then for the last time roll it out into the same size rectangle as above.

8. Using a knife trim the edges, then cut 1.5cm wide & 15 cm long strips of dough. There are a couple of ways you can make your cheese sticks, you can plait two strips together to form a twist or you can roll them out to make cheese sticks (I did this) the choice is yours.

9. Place your sticks on your tray & bake for ±15 mins or until golden brown
