    These were gone so fast!

    4 ounces butter, softened (1 stick)
    10 ounces sharp grated cheddar cheese (a sharp white is good too)
    1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
    Nice dash of Tabasco (or use pinch cayenne)
    1 cup sifted all-purpose flour

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees

    Cream butter. Mix in the cheese, Worcestershire, and Tabasco, and stir to blend.

    Slowly stir in flour until completely blended. Turn onto a lightly floured work surface and shape dough into a roll. Cover in plastic wrap and chill for several hours.

    When chilled, slice dough in four pieces lengthwise. Roll each piece until it is as thin as a drinking straw. If they get too long, cut them in half.
    Slice into straw lengths (or whatever length you like for your event) and place on a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake in PREHEATED oven for 10 - 15 minutes, or until golden brown and semi-crisp.Remember they will cook a bit in the pan after taking them from the oven.

    Depending on the thickness, you will get about 4 dozen
