Quick + easy + flavor. Christmas week musts!
It always feels like a funny so-close-yet-so-far thing, the last week before Christmas. On the one hand, work is hopefully winding down and things are done, but on the other hand I have 10 million more gifts to get and am LISTING MY HOUSE FOR SALE TOMORROW.
But time still marches on and we still have events that require goodies and hostess gifts and snacks, right? You get it.
Don't list your house for sale 5 days before Christmas. Trust me.
No matter how busy or unbusy you are this week, you definitely for sure need these cheese straws in your life. They're super easy because we use frozen puff pastry as the base, but sharp cheese and a few spices make them super tasty with very little effort. My grandmother always made traditional cheese straws, the kind that are like a shortbread and require piping. I loved them so much and miss her so much, but God BLESS I have nowhere near the kind of time or patience. This is the best imitation I can muster.
