Gluten Free Cheese Crackers — taste like Gluten Free Cheese Straws, but are easier to make — no special equipment needed.
I don’t recall the very first time I had a classic cheese straw. I think it was somewhere circa 1997. That’s when bridal teas and wedding showers were a “thing” I did on the regular.
Where today’s brides have Pinterest and hashtags, the Southern contingent of betrothed beauties had cheese straws.
We also had petit fours, finger sandwiches, and sherbet punch. But all I really ever wanted were cheese straws.
As a young bride, I found myself working to perfect the cheese straw in my own kitchen… getting the dough to just the right temperature, finding the best cheese for the job, working on the perfect amount of spice to give a bit of a “bite” without too much of a kick. I would — during the holidays — embark on this labor of love to create tins and tins of the stuff to share with family and friends… and most especially, to share with my fellow cheese straw lover, my husband.
What God hath brought together, let no bad cheese straw put asunder.
But over the years as we realized that gluten and my husband aren’t a match made in heaven, I let go of cheese straw making.
(And apparently, I also let go of an integral piece to my cookie press. Hence the reason you see before you Cheese Crackers, not straws. This dough would work just as well piped/pressed out into straws. But without a working cookie press, crackers are the best option.)
I recently decided it was time to update this beloved Southern staple and make gluten free cheese crackers.
The results were UH-MAZING.
My husband’s response to tasting them was “These may be the best things you’ve made in years.”
Who knows if that’s just the absence talking of not having had a cheese straw in so many years… or the wisdom that comes with nearly 20+ years of marriage. Telling your wife something like that ensures you will definitely get another batch and another and another.Print
