|Cheese straws ready to party|
You could make your own puff pastry for this, but at the moment I really do not have the time or the patience for that, so I buy it. Lat year I discovered the Presidents Choice brand, I really like this one as it is all butter and it comes in a sheet, so you do not have to roll it out which often destroys the layers and it saves time.
So open package spread out the pastry, or if you have the kind that comes in a lump roll it out until it is about 1/2 inch thick. Brush on Dijon mustard, I watered it down slightly so that it spreads on easier and makes a thin film.

Cut the folded pastry into strips and place on parchment paper or silpat lined cookie sheets.
