Personal Notes:
This recipe is actually Aunt Ruth Thomas' - Big JIm's sister - She was a special lady. I had the privilege of knowing her briefly before she passed away. DeeDee made these cheese straws for many many years every Christmas. I have never really tasted any that were as good as these. DeeDee had this one down perfectly! DeeDee's cookie press made the straws in a flatter press - about an inch wide and 1.5 inch long - I think that was the secret to their taste!
