Salty Cheese Straws (Gluten Free)

When making a dough, Gluten free flour can be quite challenging to work with because of its lack of elasticity.  These cheese straws were just that.  They couldn’t be twisted so had to be gently rolled and squished to get that straw like effect. It was well worth the extra little effort because they are delicious!

You will need:
1 cup of all-purpose Gluten free flour
60g salted butter (cut into cubes)
2 Tbsp. cold water
1 Cup grated Cheddar cheese
5ml Maldon Salt
A bit of milk to brush the pastry

Place the flour and cheese into a mixing bowl.  Add the butter and work into the flour with your fingers.  Once well combined add the water to form a dough.  If too sticky, add more flour. 

Break off bits of dough and squish between your hands till an even straw like shape has been formed.  Repeat this step with the rest of the dough.  Brush straws with milk and bake at 180 degrees for 15 minutes or until golden.  Allow to cool and sprinkle with Maldon salt.
