Cheese straws (without yeast)

by | Feb 16, 2024 | Breads, buns & biscuits

Cheese straws are popular as appetizers or party snacks and are enjoyed for their crunchy texture and cheesy flavor. They can be served on their own or paired with dips, spreads, or served alongside soups or salads. They can also be made in various shapes and sizes depending on personal preference or the occasion. The following recipe differs from the cheese straws I have already shared because the dough doesn’t contain yeast, it’s a simple mixture of cheese, flour, butter, lard, salt, eggs and sour cream.

Hungarian cottage cheese

This is what Hungarian túró looks like

You often ask me what kind of cottage cheese (or curd cheese or farmer's cheese - call it what you want) I use in the recipes. In Hungary the store-bought cottage cheese is dry and crumbly as you can see in the picture. So if a recipe calls for túró, I mean this type. If you can't obtain túró, you can try to make your own from whole milk. Click on the link below.

Metric system vs cup

In Hungary metric units are in use, all the recipes on this website are based on this system, so a kitchen scale is necessary. Since I’m not familiar with cup as a measurement unit, I convert grams to cups by using an online converter. The values in brackets, therefore, are only approximate volumes, so, please, double-check them before you start cooking.
