Crispy Homemade Cheese Sticks

This is now the first recipe  I am sharing as a married woman! And even though after a week back in England preparing for the wedding, the wedding then flying off to Florence for our Mini Honeymoon I still had to get baking when we got back yesterday! I love being on holiday but I miss my kitchen and I really miss baking.

Not sure how or why but I was just perusing online and saw a recipe for Crispy Homemade Cheese Sticks with Cayenne Pepper, this did not sound appealing so I took out the Cayenne Pepper. As a result I made Crispy Homemade Cheese Sticks and here is my recipe:


  • 125g of Flour
  • 137g of Cheese
  • 82g of Butter
  • 1/2 tsp of Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp of Salt
  • 1/4 tsp of Black Pepper
  • 62ml of Water

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C and line a baking tray with parchment
  2. Add the flour, cheese, butter, baking powder, salt and pepper to a large bowl and combine
  3. Slowly add the water bit by bit to create a firm dough
  4. Once combined you can start rolling out the dough on a lightly floured surface
  5. I did this by taking a small chunk of the dough at a time and rolling it to a thickness slightly larger than a pencil, I then cut them to 10cm so they look symmetrical, you can add the cut offs back to your dough
  6. Repeat this until you have used all of the dough, I would recommend leaving 2-3cm between the sticks when baking as they do grow
  7. Then you can pop them in the oven for 6-8 minutes, until golden brown

My Husband (writing this because I can) said that these Crispy Homemade Cheese Sticks were better than the ones from a bakery so I think that says it all!
