Cheese Straws

1/2 cup butter, softened
4 cups shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
Paprika (optional)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a cookie sheet.

In a large bowl cream butter and cheese. Stir in flour, cayenne pepper and salt; mix well. On a lightly floured surface, roll the dough out to 1/2 inch in thickness. Cut into 2 inch strips and sprinkle with paprika if desired. (Or use a cookie press to make little strips.) Place strips on prepared cookie sheet(s) 1 1/2 inches apart.

Bake in preheated oven for 10 to 15 minutes, or until crisp.
