Cheese Straws

1 lb. Cheddar cheese
1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 cup butter (1 stick)*
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper

Grate cheese. Cream together butter and cheese. Sift flour, salt and pepper. Gradually add into cheese and butter mixture. Roll out on floured board. Cut in strips and put on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. Pecans or olives can be put on top of strips before baking.

*One stick of butter is 1/2 c but this is the recipe as I found it.
