Part of the reason that made the pimento cheese Friday was not only to take care of my craving but also to try out a nifty recipe that I had stumbled upon here when I was searching for how to make my own pimento cheese. Last night, Rick and I headed over to a friends' house for a holiday party, and even though I was told that I didn't have to bring anything, I just couldn't resist making something! When I received our invite, I just knew that it was the perfect opportunity to try to make the Pimento Cheese Cheese Straws! How awesome could that be? I figured, too, that the fact that the pimento cheese that I made Friday was a little on the peppery side would translate well with this project. The cheese straws turned out really good, and they were a hit at the party. In the future, I may forgo making the pimento cheese with mayo and do a regular cheese straw recipe with the pimentos added.
So here's what I did....
Pimento Cheese Cheese Straws
1 cup pimento cheese
1 cup flour
Preheat oven to 350F. Mix pimento cheese and flour together to form a dough. Roll the dough into a ball and press out on a floured cutting board. Using a knife, cut the cheese mixture into 2 inch long rectangles and place on a cookie sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Bake for 20 minutes. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack before serving.
