This is a low quality photo but a high quality puff pastry cheese straw recipe, I promise. I took this after making these truffle and parmesan cheese straws in a hurry between getting home from a 5:30 PM barre class, which I was 10 minutes late to (5:30 is just not conducive for those of us with standard working hours) and running out the door to a Monday evening holiday party.
I didn’t want to bring a bottle of wine, the usual host gift, because the couple hosting is known for their impeccable taste in wine. But I wanted to bring something. So I made these absolutely delicious truffle and parmesan cheese straws. They’re incredibly easy, yet so indulgent because they’re covered in truffle salt (one of my best ever Hill’s Kitchen buys). As long as you keep a roll or two of puff pastry dough in your freezer, you’ll always be prepared for a party.
The best part? The recipe isn’t exact. You can experiment with your seasonings to your heart’s desire. There’s really no way to mess them up.
And, perhaps, if I’m lucky enough to make these again this week, I’ll make them during the day and snag a new photo. But, here we are, not caring as much about photos as I used to, right?!
