Cheese Sticks Recipe

This cheesy recipe is a mix between a bread stick and a cracker. They have a crispy outer edge but is soft on the inside. They taste great alone or can be served with your favorite dip. These cheese sticks can be “tongue depressors” for your medical-theme book club party.

Prep: 40 minutes (30 minutes for cheeses to reach room temp.) | Bake: 10 minutes | Yield: About 24

Parmesan cheddar breadsticks


  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, finely grated
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, finely grated
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 3 1/4 all purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 cup milk


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F
  2. Finely grate cheese, then allow cheeses to reach room temperature (30 minutes) before proceeding.
  3. In a large bowl, beat cheeses and butter together until smooth. Add the flour and salt and mix until dough is stiff. Gradually add milk a little at a time until dough is soft.
  4. Roll out on a floured surface until about 1/4 inch thick. Cut into strips (I used a tongue depressor as my guide when I cut the dough into sticks). Place in a greased cookie sheet.
  5. Bake 10 minutes until golden.
