Not Cheetos

I was issued a cooking challenge a few months back: Homemade Cheetos.

I thought about how to do this. Would I fry them? Make them with cornmeal? Put that weird hydrated cheese powder on it?

This is the end result:

It is a play on the Southern Cheese Straw.

Not Cheetos

INGREDIENTS
1 stick of butter, very soft
8 ounces of finely shredded cheddar cheese, at room temperature
1/2 cup of flour
2 Tablespoons hot sauce
Salt
Pepper

METHOD
Combine all ingredients until well mixed. Roll worm like shapes between your hands. Bake in a preheated oven ot 350 for about 10-12 minutes.

Makes enough to last through one baseball game watching.
