Super Cheesy Cheese Sticks

So good and crispy

So good and crispy

These are so good make an extra two batches just to handle the snacking. The dough is very similar to pie dough.

Spicy Cheese Sticks

  • 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded Romano cheese
  • 1 cup sifted flour
  • 1/2 cup cold butter cut into small chunks
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp Old Bay
  • 1-1 1/2 tbsp buttermilk

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a mixing bowl add everything but the buttermilk and mix on medium speed until butter is beaten into cheese. Add buttermilk slowly until dough forms. Remove dough from bowl and roll out to 1/8″thick. Slice into 4-5″ long straws about 1/4″ thick and place on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake until puffed and light brown, about 20 minutes. Best hot but good cold. Will keep in the pantry for about a week.

    The cayenne and Old bay would separate these from most other snacks. I bet they would be the first to go on game day.

    These sticks wouldn’t last a week in a container in our house. I don’t think they would even see the inside of a container. 😀
