what's cooking wednesdays

i should be somewhere in the sky right now on my way to nyc {ah, the joys of scheduled posts}!

i meant to post this recipe AGES ago. several of you requested the cheese straw recipe i use for my homemade office christmas presents. i use this paula deen recipe, but i normally double the amount of cayenne pepper and i try to use the best cheddar i can find since it's the premiere ingredient. i don't recommend making these without a cookie press {i've tried and the results are just not as attractive}. it can take a little while to get the hang of these, but they are SO delicious and always a big hit.

try making these to serve at your next cocktail party. very little effort and so much better than any kind you can buy in a box.

bon appetit!

Those sound divine. I'm always looking for something a little more exciting than cheese and crackers!

All southern girls believe in the power of cocktails and cheese straws. Plus they make such fabulous gifts...
