Cheese Straws: The Perfect Appetizer?


Crispy, salty, and light as a feather: cheese straws and wafers might just be the perfect bar snack.

Find the New York Times-approved recipe below.

For these, please use butter. For cheese, choose sharp Cheddar, real Parmesan, Gruyère or whatever other cheese suits your fancy.
