Happy Football Friday everyone!
I don't know about you, but I adore cheese straws. That cheese with a little bit of spice is a definite weakness of mine- but at the cheapest price of $6.99 for a little bitty bag, they are not something I am able to enjoy often. When I was growing up, my mom used to make cheese cookies. They are a lot like cheese straws, but wayyy less expensive. They are the perfect addition to a shower or party, but also a great tailgating food!! We will be enjoying them as we watch Auburn play the Arkansas Razorbacks tomorrow!

Mix thoroughly and roll into balls. Press with fork and sprinkle with cayenne for additional kick! Bake at 350* for 18-20 minutes.
