1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese for
1/2 cup butter
3 tablespoons ice water
Preheat oven to 205°C.
Sieve the white flour into a mixing bowl with the baking powder. Mix well.
Combine the grated cheese with the
flour and baking powder mix. Gradually blend in the butter until the mixture
resembles coarse crumbs. Add water and mix well into a semi smooth pastry.
Roll pastry into sheets. The thickness can vary, depending upon your
preferences. If you want solid sticks, increase thickness.
Optional: If you are making
thin twisted strips, sprinkle one side of the pastry sheets with some grated
cheddar cheese. Gently press in by hand.
Cut pastry sheets into 1 cm wide
strips. The length can vary depending upon your preferences. If you make thin
strips, you can gently twist the strips as shown in photo.
Bake on an ungreased baking sheet
for 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Keep an eye on the oven as
the pastry can burn very quickly. Serve warm or cold.
