Cheese Sticks Fun

I had a great day today. Morning had such a "BIG" breakfast with hubby then lunch with buddies and then "FUN" in the kitchen with my daughter in the evening..:) We ( my girl & me) had been thinking what to bake for today. It has been a long break since her last baking fun with me. Yea, she's been asking for it..;) Guess she has the interest in it and hopefully she is so that I can pass down all my collections to her..hee hee!

Alright since she wants to bake so much today, we found something easy and nice for her. Cheese sticks it is! I have this recipe kept for a long long time, think its more than 10 years. (Adapted from the magazine, Women's Weekly)

Look at all the shapes! All created by my girl..haha! (except the twisted ones). And she even packed some to share with her friends tomorrow in school...^-^

Oh the recipe, here is it...

(Makes 20 sticks)

1 + 1/4 cup Plain flour
1/4 cup Self raising flour
1 tsp Salt
75g Butter, chopped
1 cup Grated cheddar cheese
1/2 cup Grated Parmesan cheese
1 egg yolk
2-3 tbsps Water ( may need more - add slowly)


~ Sift all flours and salt together into a large bowl.
~ Rub in butter. Stir in cheeses.
~ Make a well in the center and add in egg yolk.
~ Add in water slowly to form a soft dough.
~ Knead in a floured surface until smooth (about 5 minutes)
~ Wrap with cling form and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
~ Roll dough into desire shapes or just twist it and place on a tray lined with parchment paper.
~ Bake at 180'C for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.
~ Cool completely before storing.

The exact amount of water you need depends on the quality of flour you use. I need about 3 tbsps today actually. The texture is good, and its so cheesy when baked....yum yum!

Happy baking everyone......!!!!!!
