December, Day 13: Party, Part 1

13.December 2009

I have many, many recipes and stories to share from our lovely little party last night, but right now, I’m too tired and too full of latkes from Jess and Eli’s little party to get into all that. One thing I made for the Par-tay was very simple: cheese straws. These little snacks are delicious, look way more impressive than they ought to, and are a snap to make.
Here’s what you do. Buy some frozen puff pastry. Thaw it. Grate some good quality hard cheese (parm, asiago, etc.) and sprinkle it over the dough. Slice into 3/4 inch stripes. Pick them up, twist them three or four times (lengthwise), and place them on a baking sheet. Bake until they’re puffy and golden brown. Enjoy!

Stay tuned for more highlights, including the Best Punch Ever, Ginger Sandwich Cookies with lemon cream, Two kinds of brown butter tarts, vanilla caramels dipped in chocolate, and more. Happy Sunday to you all. I’m off to bed now!

    Just searched for awhile before finding this great tip! I knew I had seen this here and now, a year + later, I want to make them! Thanks!
