Cheest Twists


Makes: 1 bowlful

  • 150g Red Leicester cheese

  • 40g butter, softened

  • 160g plain flour

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon mustard powder (optional)

  • milk, as required

  • plain flour, as required



Prep: 20 mins | Cook: 15 mins
Grate the Red Leicester and place it in a mixing bowl. Cut the butter roughly into cubes - this makes it easier to work with - and cream the two together. Don't worry if it looks a bit of a mess, this is a very rustic snack!
Don't worry if the cheese straws are slightly burnt around the edges, this adds colour and texture and should not be considered as a bad thing.
