A crunchy and flavourful finger food made with a dough of whole wheat flour and cheese, these Cheese Sticks are perfect to serve with a tangy or herby dip.


Cheese gives this crispy snack a nice texture that is kind of flaky and crisp. Its cheesy flavour is also perfect to serve with tongue-tickling dips . Alternatively you can perk up the dough with your choice of herbs or spices, which will make the Cheese Sticks sufficiently spicy to serve as a standalone snack with tea .
