Quick and easy salty snack only from 5 ingredients. Super easy to prepare and your guests will love it. Trust me ;)
When my guests see the salty sticks, their reaction is UUUUUUU and start to eat, they don’t care if it’s still hot 🙂 Freshly baked sticks are the best, just melting in your mouth 😛 omnomnom…
Tips and tricks before starting:
All of the dairy ingredients should be at room temperature, so make sure to take them out from the fridge 1-2 hours before starting. This way the diaries combine better, become smoother and will help to get the perfect texture and taste.
I use a Bosch kitchen machine for beating everything because I have to work less this way. The mixing is also working well manually 🙂 I know because I didn’t always have the kitchen machine.
Every oven works differently so 1st time check the sticks before the required baking time. I baked it on 175 oC (350 oF), but maybe your oven is stronger, so be careful not to overbake the sticks.
I recommend the freshly baked sticks because freshly made snacks are best. It also tasty the next day, but most of the time, there’s no next day for sticks 🙂
You can make it 1 day before and store in the fridge for a night, covered with plastic wrap. In this case, take it out from the fridge half an hour before rolling.
This portion is enough to fill 3 baking trays with the sticks. If you’re hosting more people, make double portion with 2 balls.
Preparation time: 15 + 30 min
Baking time: 3 x 15 min (depends on the size of your baking tray)
Ingredients for the cheesy salty sticks
- 250 g (2 cups) flour + some for the rolling
- 250 g (~1 cup) butter, room temperature
- 250 g (1 1/4 cups) cottage cheese
- pinch of salt
- 1 egg

How to make the cheesy salty sticks?
Preheat the oven to 175 oC (350 oF).
Mix flour, room temperature butter and salt until the mixture is completely smooth, then add the cottage cheese and stir till it’s well combined.
Make a big ball from it and put into the fridge for half an hour, easier to roll the harder mixture.
Or you can prepare it 1 day before and store in the fridge for a night, as you could read the tips and tricks.
Put the ball onto a lightly floured surface and roll until 3-5 mm thickness and cut into slices. Beat the egg and glaze the top with it. Finally, sprinkle the grated cheese on top.
Place the sticks on a baking tray lined with baking parchment. Put into the oven. They need 15-20 minutes, when the cheese on top is golden brown, it’s gooooood 🙂
Serve immediately and enjoy it!
Be careful, it can cause addiction 😉
