I get so tired of searching for my favorite recipes so I thought I would post them here. Now they will all be in one place for me and family and friends to find. It may take me a while to get them all on here but I'm working on it! Even though I have some of these pinned in Pinterest this is my "go-to" place when I am hunting for my favorite recipes.

1 cup all-purpose flour 6 tablespoons frozen unsalted butter, grated 1 cup coarsely grated cheddar cheese (4 ounces) 1 cup coarsely grated Parmesan cheese (4 ounces) 1/4 cup ice water, plus more for sprinkling Coarse salt
1. Preheat the oven to 400°. Butter a large baking sheet.
2. In a medium bowl, combine the flour and grated butter. Add the cheeses and mix, using your hands, until well combined. Stir in the water. On a clean, floured work surface, knead the dough until smooth, sprinkling in a few drops of ice water if the dough is too dry. Shape into a disk.
3. Roll out the disk to form a large rectangle (about 9 by 12 inches and 1/4 inch thick). Cut 1/2-inch strips from the longer side, then cut those in half to form 6-inch strips. Sprinkle the cheese straws with salt, transfer to the baking sheet with a spatula and bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
