Delicious and easy for entertaining or to snack on.
Let cheese sit out for 1-2 days, so it is easy to work with. Place cheese in blender. Add melted margarine. Slowly add flour to mix. Add salt and cayenne pepper.
Place mix in a tube that squeezes out, or make your own with a sandwich bag by cutting out the tip.
Squeeze on to pan. Place cheese straws into refrigerator for 15-20 min to firm them up. Place into pre-heated oven 375 degrees F. Bake 12-13 minutes.

Here we go again with my love of jalapenos and cheese, but this one has the added wonderful flavor of green olives. :) Make a double batch and freeze to bake at a later time for a quick snack.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a small mixing bowl, combine cheese and butter. Stir in flour. Blend well. Wrap a tablespoon of dough around each green olive. Arrange the wrapped olives on a cookie sheet.
Bake for 15 minutes, or until golden brown.

You have got to try this one! Cut some sharp cheddar cheese into dipping sized slices. Put some of your favorite honey into a bowl. Dip cheese into honey and eat! Kids love it! It's an easy summer time snack.

As a child, I enjoyed these little cheese rolls from a grocery store bakery/deli counter, but have not seen them for about 20 years. They were small straw-like rolls, about 6 inches long and less than a half inch in diameter. The outside was a thin cheese-flavored wafer-like coating that could be unpeeled in layers. The inside was a soft cheddar cheese filling.
They were much like the chocolate flavored straws with a French-sounding name that begins with "P" but which I can't recall the name. Does anyone know the name of these, or a source from which to buy them?

I am not sure about the chocolate ones or the name .. but I know that the restaurant called "La Madeleines" carries cheese straws and they are delicious! Especially with their tomato basil soup. (09/29/2008)
