DIRECTIONS

  • Sift together flour, baking powder, salt and cayenne pepper into a mixing bowl. Add shortening and cut in with a pastry blender until well incorporated. (I think you could do this with a few pulses in a food processor.) Stir in Cheddar cheese, onion, and Worcestershire and Tabasco sauces. Add buttermilk and stir to make a soft dough.
  • Wrap in wax paper or plastic wrap and chill for 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 475°F
  • On a lightly floured board, roll out dough into an 8-x 12-inch rectangle. Wrap loosely around rolling pin and transfer to a cold lightly greased baking sheet. With a metal spatula, cut dough in half lengthwise, then cut across at 1-inch intervals to form the sticks. Brush sticks with melted butter, sprinkle with Parmesan and bake until lightly browned, about 10 minutes.
  • Immediately remove from baking sheet and serve hot, or cool on wire racks before storing in airtight containers.
