Prep Time:15 mins
Cook Time:20 mins
Total Time:35 mins


  • 10 ounces tomato basil feta cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter cut into pieces and softened
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
  • 1/4 C chopped black olives
  • 2 tablespoons buttermilk


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Pulse the first 5 ingredients in a food processor until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add buttermilk, and process for approx. 10 seconds or until the dough forms a ball.
  • Turn the dough out onto a well-floured surface; divide the dough in half. Roll each half into a 12- x 8-inch rectangle, approx. 1/8 inch thick. Cut the dough into 3/4-inch-wide strips using a sharp knife or fluted pastry wheel. Place the dough strips on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Bake approx. 15 to 20 minutes or until the edges are well browned. Remove the cheese straws and cool on a wire rack for 30 minutes.


Tip: Coat your rolling pin in flour as well as dip your knife in flour after each cut to ensure clean cuts
Servings: 24 to 36 cheese straws
