Storecupboard Dinners - Left Over Cheese Straws

So, after making Storecupboard pies, you will be left with pastry trimmings, yes?

You don't chuck them away do you?  No, no, no, make some cheese straws.

What you need:

  • Left over pastry trimmings
  • Grated Cheddar
  • Black Onion Seeds or Poppy Seeds
  • A little flour
What you do:

  • Shake some flour on your worktop and plop your pastry trimmings on top.

  • Grate some cheese on the top, to taste.
  • Sprinkle your seeds on now.

  • Knead gently until it is all mixed, try not to over knead it as it will make it tough.

  • Roll out, you don't need to be neat, then cut into slices.

  • Twist each one and lay on a baking tray.

  • Cook at Gas 6 for 10 mins or until golden brown.
  • Nibble while watching telly  (or while waiting for your pies to cook!)

Email me through your Storecupboard Dinner recipes and I will feature them in my blog, or if you prefer add a link to your own blog in the comment box.
