How to keep cheese straws crisp
Cheese straws consist of puff pastry strips sprinkled with seasoning and tangy cheese. The strips are then baked in the oven to create classic cheese straws. The straws can be served as a snack or appetiser hot or cold. After you make cheese straws, store them properly to ensure that they remain crisp and fresh.
Allow the cheese straws to cool completely.
Place them into an airtight container or plastic storage bag and store them at room temperature to keep them crispy. Remove as much air as possible from the storage bag.
Store the cheese straws for up to one week.
Heat the oven to 180 degrees C (360F). Bake the cheese straws on a baking tray for three to four minutes to restore any lost crispness.
- You can store unbaked cheese straw dough in the fridge for one week, or freeze the dough for up to one month.
- Discard the cheese straws if they have an odd odour, because the ingredients in the straws can go rancid after one week.
