Filo Cheese Straws – These “cigars” are a variation on a theme of cheese straws, and they really are irresistible, so you probably need to make more than you expect! Use a cheese with a good strong flavour.

  •  packet of  filo pastry
  • Olive oil
  • 1 ½ cups shredded cheese, Parmesan is nice
  • 2 teaspoons chilli powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Cut the filo sheets in half crosswise.  Brush each one with olive oil, then fold in half and brush with oil again.  Place a narrow band of shredded cheese along one long edge and sprinkle with the spices. Roll up tightly.  Cut the roll in half and brush the top with olive oil.  Repeat with the remaining filo sheets.  Place on a greased baking sheet and bake in a preheated 425 degree F or 200 degree C oven for 15 minutes.  Eat hot or while still warm. Can be eaten cold.
