The funny thing about living in Texas is that you live in the south, but you're not OF the South. Southern staples like shrimp & grits, fried green tomatoes…and cheese straws are more southEASTern specialties. In Texas, you'll find we all make a mean Frito Chili Pie, queso, and Texas Sheet Cake.
So, my mom (who was a great cook) always bought cheese straws…at STEINMART. I cannot walk into Steinmart without my stomach growling. We typically had them when company was visiting or on holidays.
Cheese straws are easy to make! Similar to a homemade cheese cracker, but a little lighter in texture. They're crunchy, cheesy, with just the right amount of spice.
