- 1 pound feta cheese, grated
- 2 teaspoons caraway seeds
- 1 pound all purpose white flour
- 1-2 egg yolks (for glazing the cheese straws)
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 pound butter
- 1/2 cup plain yogurt
Mix the flour, grated feta cheese, yogurt, butter and baking powder, until you get a firm dough. Cool it in the fridge for 1 hour. Divide the dough in 4 parts. Roll each of them until you get a 1/8 inch thick sheet. Try to shape it rectangular, if you can. If not, it’s not a problem, use a knife to cut the round edges and mix them into another dough ball.
In a small bowl, separate the egg yolks. Save the whites to use for other foods. With a pastry brush, glaze the dough sheet generously. Spread caraway seeds all over it.
Cut the dough sheet in stripes about 1/2 inch wide. The length can be anything you wish.
Preheat the oven to 350 F. Put baking paper in a tray, then transfer the dough stripes on it, carefully not to break them.
Bake the straws for 10-15 minutes. Watch them closely after 10 minutes, because it’s easy to overcook them.
Serve them at room temperature. If you have any of them left (although I doubt that) you can store them in the fridge and eat them the next day.
