Nutrition Facts: 240 calories 9 grams fat
3/4 stick (6 tablespoons) unsalted butter
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon kosher salt
1/8 teaspoon cayenne
1 cup grated sharp white Cheddar (about 4 ounces)
2 teaspoons mustard seeds
Preheat oven to 400°F. and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper.
Cut butter into bits and in a food processor pulse with flour, 1 teaspoon salt, and cayenne until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add Cheddar and pulse until mixture forms a dough. Form dough into a disk. Chill dough, wrapped in plastic wrap, until firm, at least 30 minutes, and up to 2 days.
On a lightly floured surface with a lightly floured rolling pin roll out dough into a 16- by 4-inch rectangle (about 1/4 inch thick). Trim edges of rectangle and lightly brush rectangle with water. Sprinkle rectangle with mustard seeds and remaining 2 teaspoons salt. Gently roll rolling pin over dough to make seeds and salt adhere.
With a sharp long knife cut rectangle crosswise into roughly 1/3-inch-wide sticks. Transfer sticks with a
spatula to baking sheet and arrange about 3/4 inch apart. Bake sticks in middle of oven until golden, about
10 minutes, and transfer to a rack to cool. Cheddar sticks may be kept in an airtight container at cool room
temperature 1 week, or frozen 1 month.
Makes about 45 sticks.

"I love this chocolate cake, it is excellent. I've made it several times and every time it is moist with a beautiful flavour. Made it again today for afternoon tea and everyone loved it.

"I've made this twice (doubled the recipe both times) - definitely a keeper and no comparison to store-bought. My only tweaks: I added a half-tablespoon of garlic salt, crushed the fennel seeds (mortar and pestle) and used a hand-blender when it was done to make it smooth. The leftovers keep really well in the freezer." - cyarcher3
"I made this sauce and loved the taste. The only thing I didn't like was how thick it was 'like a paste thick'. Next time I will add a little water to loosen it up some." - rdarej3
