Cheesy Breadsticks

READY IN: 2hrs 40mins




  • In food processor, combine the flour, salt, cayenne and baking powder.
  • Pulse several times to mix.
  • Add the butter and cheese, then pulse for about 30 seconds, or until the ingredients are well mixed (it should resemble slightly moist flour).
  • Add the sour cream and pulse on and off for about 1 minute, or until the ingredients come together as a moist, doughy clump.
  • Remove the dough from the food processor, form into a ball, then cover in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper, or coat it with cooking spray.
  • On a lightly floured counter, roll out the dough into a large rectangle about 1/8-inch thick.
  • Trim the edges to create a neat rectangle.
  • Using a knife or a pizza cutter, cut the dough into strips 6 inches long and about 1/2 inch wide.
  • Combine the scraps and repeat with remaining dough to make about 18-24 sticks.
  • Gently twist each strip to create a spiral, then arrange them on the prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake for 8 minutes, or until lightly browned.
