Cheese straws ( toddler snack) - recipe

Cheese has become a favourite thing to eat by toddler. Especially on the morning sandwich. So I want to make something with cheese but little different, that toddler will enjoy. Came up with cheese straws. That is the quickest and easiest to bake while toddler takes noon nap. I used to bake it when he was younger. But time to reintroduce it again. It is great as a snack for him. This way, I at least know what goes in it. 

2 dl flour
2 dl grated cheese
1 dl butter
Egg if you like to make them little shiny

1. Add butter and flour in a bowl and rub it together with your hand untilit gets crumbly. Add the cheese and work the dough until it's nice and soft. If it is sticky add more flour.

2. Roll out the dough into 0,5 cm thickness. Then cut out the straws. 

3. Place it on a baking tray with a baking sheet under. Bake in the oven at 200 , degrees, for ten mins.  When you take them out put a muslin cloth on and let them cool. Eat as is or use them to eat with a nice dip of your choice. 

4. If you want you can add half an egg in the dough, and the rest you can glaze the straws with before placing the tray in the oven. But this time I left it out. It was a great hit! Both toddler and hubby finished them.
