Transcript:Cheddar Cheese Sticks

Hi, I'm Rachel Edelman for About.com Food. Today I'm going to show you how to make cheddar cheese sticks.

Cheddar Cheese Sticks Ingredients

For this recipe you will need:
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 4 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3 tablespoons sour cream

Prepare the Dough

First combine the flour, salt, pepper, and baking powder. Next, use a pastry blender to cut in the butter.

Then cut in the cheese. Now stir in the sour cream, and mix it all well.

Shape the dough into a ball, cover with a paper towel, and put it into the refrigerator for one hour.

Cut the Dough Into Strips

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Lightly flour a rolling surface and pin.

Knead the dough a little, and then roll it out so it's 1/8 inch thick. Try to get it nice and thin for a crispy stick.

Next, use a pizza cutter or knife to cut the dough into thin strips about 1/4-inch wide and 3 inches long.

Bake the Cheese Sticks

Place them on a greased cookie sheet. To give them shape, you can give the sticks a little twist as you put them on the sheet.

Bake the sticks for 8 minutes. Let the sticks cool on a wire rack before serving and enjoy!
