This is a favorite Christmas recipe of my father's and husband's. It's fairly simple to do and tastes good.

I made this recipe last year and it turns out great. A couple of pointers though, 1) watch how much cayenne pepper you put in, a LITTLE goes a long way; and 2) instead of strips, I recommend a cookie gun. I use the small star disk and the pipped out string works out excellent. When it STARTS to brown in the oven, remove because it will continue to cook and brown even more after removing.

If you want something different to serve as snacks, if your kids like cheese goldfishes - you will want to make this! I made this with no cayenne pepper and with sharp cheddar cheese and it was positively scrumptious! Make sure the butter is at room temperature, cream it first, then add the cheese, and then add the flour a little at a time. I rolled that into a ball with my hands a little at a time and cooked for exactly 12 minutes - wonderful!

Use a cookie press to make these -- I press long ribbons then cut or break them into 1 inch pieces before baking. I'm thinking one of the small cookie press plates (like the small star) would also make more straw-like snacks.
