'Global Kadai' by Cilantro is a food blogging event, showcasing Global Flavour in an Indian version'I made these cheese straws with an Indian twist adding cumin,sesame,chilli and onion powder.My family loved this Indian version.Try this cookie and I am sure you would get hooked to this crunchy cookie or straws .
4 oz sharp cheddar cheese, room temperature, grated
4 oz salted butter, room temperature
1 cup all purpose flour
1/4 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
1/2 tsp Chilli powder
1 tsp sesame seeds
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Add all the ingredients to a food processor except  sesame seeds pulse till everything is mixed together.Mix in the sesame seeds.
Transfer the cheese-butter mixture to a cookie press or as I did to a murukku press
Pipe the mixture directly onto a large baking sheet; average 3 to 4 inches in length.
Bake for 10 minutes or until lightly tanned.
Cool on a wire rack.
Serve as is.
