Quick and easy cheese straws:
- Preheat the oven to 180°C/fan160°C/gas 4. Lightly grease 2 baking sheets with a little butter. Sift the flour into a large bowl, then rub the butter into the flour using your fingertips until the mixture looks like fine breadcrumbs. Add the grated cheese and mix together.
- Add half the beaten egg and stir into the flour until the mixture starts to come together, then use your hands to work it into a ball.
- Dust a work surface with a little flour and roll out the pastry into a rectangle, about 3mm thick, using a rolling pin. Cut widthways into straws, about 5mm wide.
- Carefully put the straws on the baking sheets, leaving a little space between them. Sprinkle with extra cheese and bake for 12-15 minutes, until golden. Cool for a couple of minutes on the baking sheets, then carefully pick them up with a palette knife and put them on a cooling rack. Eat warm or cool and store in an airtight container.
