    potato flour

  • 50


10 min - 12 min

Oven temperature: 190°C

Rub the butter and flours together until the mixture resembles bread- crumbs. Stir in the xanthan gum, the pepper and the grated cheese until everything is evenly mixed.
Add the cream and gently press the mixture together until it forms a soft dough.

Roll out the dough into a rectangle of about 20 x 10cm on a piece of clingfilm. Cut 20 strips 1cm wide and carefully place on a lined baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until the cheese straws are golden and crisp. Leave to cool completely before packaging in a pretty jar. The cheese straws are rather fragile, so handle carefully.
