Blue and Cheddar Cheese Straws and Wafers


  • Crisco® Original No-Stick Cooking Spray
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 4 ounces crumbled blue cheese
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups Martha White® All-Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)

Preparation Directions

  1. HEAT oven to 375ºF. Spray a large baking sheet with no-stick cooking spray. Combine cheeses and butter in small bowl; beat with electric mixer until blended. Combine flour, salt and ground red pepper in medium bowl; mix well. Add to cheese mixture; beat in or stir until well blended. If dough is very soft, cover and refrigerate 1 hour.
  2. FORM dough into smooth ball. On lightly floured surface, roll out dough until very thin, about 1/8-inch thick. With sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut dough into 5 x 1/2-inch sticks or cut into 1 1/2 inch rounds with small biscuit cutter. Place on prepared cookie sheet.
  3. BAKE 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool at least 15 minutes on wire rack before serving.
