I wanted to try something a little different from all of the sweet Pudsey Bear recipes on offer and thought I’d give cheese straws a whirl as the girls love them, they’re nutritious, great to keep in a plastic box for ‘Mummy, I’m hungry!’ moments and an excellent alternative to the usual biscuit. Having used recipes for cupcakes from Baking Mad the other day I needed to come up with something new for Pudsey’s big day today.
They are so simple to prepare and only take 10 mins, plus the little ones can help too!
450g grated cheese
250g plain flour
1/2 tsp chilli powder/mustard powder/cayenne pepper (optional)
Preheat the oven to 200C Gas 6 and grease some baking trays – I used 3 as the bears are quite large
If using sprinkle with chilli powder
Bake in the oven for 10 – 15 minutes
