CRISPY GOOD!! My mother always baked cornbread sticks in a cast iron corn stick pan. She always told me that the secret was to have the sections of the pan well-greased with vegetable oil and to preheat the empty pan first. This made the edges and bottoms of the cornbread sticks to begin a fry-crisp crust. This was a treat that the whole family enjoyed particularly when having cooked leafy green vegetables. This is her recipe as she wrote it.
