Cheese straws (sticks) - recipe

I love finding new ways of making snacks that are messy free when my son eats them outside. This is a perfect snack, both for young and adults. Cheese straws are good  and very easy to do. My son likes to eat them at any time of the day. When we go out I just put a few straws in a plastic container and we are good to go.

1.5 cup flour
6 tbsp butter
2 cups chredded cheese
1 egg beaten
sesame seeds, optional

1. Mix cold butter and the flour in a bowl until it looks crumbly. Then add the cheese and the egg. You can save little of the egg if you like to brush the straws before it goes in the oven. Put the dough in the fridge for 10 mins to chill.

2. Once it has been chilled, roll the dough out and cut into straws or sticks that are half cm thick. Brush them with egg and sprinkle over some sesame seeds if you like.

3. Bake in the oven for 10 min at 175 degrees, until golden brown.

4. Serve your toddlers when they crave a snack or take with you when you guys are out and about.
