Kids In The Kitchen - Cheese Straws

Welcome back to Kids In The Kitchen, my weekly linky that is encouraging me, and hopefully you, to get the kids cooking more. You can see the full details of the idea on my Kids In the Kitchen page, I hope you will join in.

This week I had my little ones cooking cheese straws, they were easy to make and they disappeared very quickly once made.

Last week we enjoyed a lovely post from Twin Life Online when the twins cooked a coffee cake and a beautiful picture from All About A Mummy of her baking buddies decorating some cupcakes.

I'd love to see your posts about your kids cooking up a storm. The rules for sharing are simple, just let the kids cook and share your blog post about it. You can also share older posts if you wish.

Cheese Straws


  • 150g cheddar cheese
  • 200g plain flour
  • 100g butter
  • 1 egg


  • Put flour into a large bowl
  • chop the butter into chunks and put in the bowl, then rub into the flour with fingers
  • lightly whisk the egg and add to the flour
  • add the cheese
  • bind all the indregients together to make a firm dough.
  • roll out dough then cut into long strips
  • bake in oven at 229C/gas mark 7 for about 8 minutes
  • cool and eat

  1. I LOVE cheese straws but haven't made any for ages. Will either dig out one of D's posts to link up this week or will write up one i have been meaning to write up for ages. xxx

  2. Oh yes, we love making cheese straws! Though this has reminded me that we haven't done it for a while - thanks for that, I'll get onto it!

  3. Oh I might try making these with my kids this weekend since - yet again - the wether is going to be horrendous! Thanks for the idea!


Thank you for stopping by, I truly appreciate all comments x

A little Note About Positive Reviews on Raisie Bay

Some people only write reviews when things go wrong with products, which is good because it lets people know that there could be potential problems. I've also seen negative feedback with say things like, I had to return this item because the colour did not suit me...is this useful?

I write reviews on most items I buy because I like to give genuine feedback. If I have a genuine problem with a product I will write my review in the appropriate place.

I write reviews on my blog too, but they are mostly positive. Why? Because I only write reviews for the things I've loved. If I don't love them I let the person who sent me them know with details why and then let them decided if they would rather me write a negative review or not write one at all. It's always the latter.

This is my blog, my place and I'll let you know about the things I love. If you want to find out what other people have hated about the product then you will need to look elsewhere.

My reviews may all be positive, but they are still genuine.
