Pimento cheese straws

1 tub Palmetto Cheese 12oz.
3/4 cup Butter
2 cups All Purpose Flour
1/2 tsp baking powder

In a mixer cream together Palmetto Cheese and butter. To the creamed mixture add baking powder and slowly add flour until all ingredients are blended together. Place dough into a cookie press or pastry bag. Use a star plate or tip depending upon your press or bag. Lightly grease a baking sheet. Pipe or press out a long line of dough. Lines should be no larger than 1" wide. Too thick of dough and your straws will not come out crispy.

Bake for approximately 17 minutes at 375F or until golden brown and crispy. Cut or break into pieces and serve.

Palmetto Cheese Sticks with Spicy Ranch

Ingredients:
1 Tub Jalapeno Palmetto Cheese
1 pkg Ritz crackers, crushed
1 cup all purpose flour
2 eggs, beaten
3 Cups oil

Ranch dressing
Hot sauce

This recipe will involve some extra planning.
Cover a plate or tray with saran wrap. Scoop 2 heaping tablespoons of Palmetto Cheese and form a rectangular stick in your hand. Place the formed PC onto the plate. Continue this step with the rest of the tub. You should get 6 to 8 sticks. Place your plate into the freezer. Freeze for at least 4 hours or until the PC is very firm to the touch. This will keep it from falling apart.

Preheat oven to 400F
Breading procedure:
In 3 separate bowls you will have flour, 2 beaten eggs, and finely crushed Ritz crackers. Take your frozen PC stick and lightly flour. Next drench the stick in your beaten egg. Finally take your stick and completely cover with Ritz cracker crumbs. If you still have PC showing repeat the breading process again. Continue this step will all the PC sticks.
In a small saute pan or saucepan heat 3 cups of vegetable oil. Heat the oil to approx. 350F. Place your Palmetto Cheese sticks in the hot oil. Brown on each side being careful not to burn. Place browned sticks onto a sheet pan and place in the oven for 10 minutes. Serve with spicy ranch dipping sauce. 

Spicy Ranch Dipping Sauce:
While your sticks are in the oven place ranch dressing into a bowl. Add hot sauce to your taste. Some like it really spicy and some a little less. Enjoy! 
Note: recipe can be made with Original Palmetto Cheese and regular ranch dressing.
