I made these for my family in hopes they would gobble them up..especially since my little guy is fond of cheese, but these were not well recieved. I ended up eating most of them because I hated to see them go to waste. Mine were really crumbly and didn't stay together too well. I did like the taste and texture, but probably won't attempt these again unless I have a specific request. I have found other recipes with similar ingredients that sound promising. Maybe I'll give them a shot as well. Thanks anyway.

I added some spices to mine---paprika, and a little parmesan cheese. I also added a few tablespoons of water and a little more flour. We rolled them out like snakes. Also, I think the ratio of flour to cheese is off in this recipe, so I added a little more cheese. I think the secret here is to make a workable dough. If your dough is not workable, add more flour, or if its too dry, add a sprinkling of water. A little baking powder helps them not be so flat.

i just made these, and the dough is hard to work with. i plan to try again, and handle the dough differently. i would suggest really working and mixing the dough by hand, then sticking in the fridge for a few minutes, because i had some straws turn out good, and some just melt on the cookie sheet. then after forming the balls i suggest sticking then in the fridge again for about 15-20 minutes to make it easier to roll the straws. also, i used parchment to line my cookie sheet, and i'm glad i did. i also used a spicey cheddarjack cheese for a little kick. these would be great with some sort of dipping sauce, maybe ranch with when using a spicey cheese, or a marinara when using a parmesan or mozzerela cheese. good recipe, just takes some practice i think.
