Another perfect way how to co-bake with your little ones. No limits to decoration: sesame, sunflower or poppy seeds, any kind of herbs or salt.
I like to serve them with Salsa Mexicana and Garlic Dip.
Note that Cheesy sticks are suitable for kids 2 plus because of a possible egg white intolerance and presence of milk. They are very satisfying as a baby snack in between the meals.
Total Time: 1 hour 15 minutes

½ cup of lukewarm milk
1 teaspoon of caster sugar
250g of plain flour, sifted
150g of quality full-flavoured cheese (I used Cheddar)
125g of butter, soft
1 small egg for brushing, lightly whisked
Next, place the flour, cheese and butter in a large mixing bowl. Add the yeast and knead the dough with hands until it becomes a smooth homogeneous mixture.
Add milk accordingly to texture. It is not always necessary.
Sieve your working surface with a bit of flour and roll out the dough to ½ cm with a roller. Cut the strips or shapes of your liking with a pastry cutter wheel.
Transfer all strips gently onto 2 baking trays lined with a baking paper. Brush them with the egg reduced with a bit of milk.
Decorate as per my ideas mentioned above. I used satureja and sunflower seeds for 1 tray, mix of Pizza Herbs for another one.
Bake in the oven for about 15-20 minutes until golden and baked through. Then, take the stick out and let them cool down a bit. Enjoy the party and serve with a glass of a sparkling wine!
