If you’ve never made your own cheese straws, now is the time to give it a go. These delicious snacks are so easy to make, especially if you are using ready-made and pre-rolled puff pastry.
All you need to do then is to sprinkle on the cheese, shape them into twists and bake. And it only takes about 20 minutes.
Served with a spicy dip, like this meat-free chimichurri sauce, they are perfect for Christmas parties – especially for your vegetarian friends. If you're feeding it to the kids you may want to leave out the chilli as it's a pretty fiery dip.
