Cheese sticks for baby

I did pumpkin cheese sticks for the lil' fella when he was about 8month old, then I stumbled upon this recipe which uses even less ingredients. Even though he's way over 1 year now and he can eat almost anything, but a simple recipe is still what I like. Woke up at 6:30am today and that's consider early, cos he doesn't wake till about 7:15am and I only need 15min to prep his lunch, so I got together some ingredients (and even snapped some photos) to bake these lovely cheese sticks. The original recipe has baking powder in it, I actually forgot to add them and they turned out just as nice, guess it's okay to omit them, especially if you have a baby who's still under 10month old.
This is a great teether or finger snacks for the baby, especially if travelling in a car or in a stroller.
You'll only need 4 ingredients, flour, butter, cheese and milk.

You'll only need 4 ingredients for this recipe:
  • 1cup all purpose flour (or known as plain flour)
  • 2tbsp butter, chopped into little cubes (Do not melt them)
  • 1/2 cup grated Cheddar cheese plus 1tbsp grated Parmesan (but Parmesan is optional)
  • 3-5tbsp fresh milk *the amount of milk added may differ depending on your flour used

And I've used my breadmaker to combine everything and form a dough. (I've been using it to make all sorts of food lately, just made some bagels last night and they turned out fab. It's so dainty I actually bring it to work with me and them carry it home in the evening).

To make the dough in the breadmaker,
  1. Sift flour into the breadpan. Press mode no. 6 和面 and select timer 时间 to adjust the timing to 8minutes. Add in chopped butter. Let them combine until the mixture resembles breadcrumb.                              
  2. Add all cheese. Mix well.
  3. Drizzle in milk while machine continues to mix. Continue mixing until dough forms.
  4. On a floured board, roll dough into a flat sheet, about 0.2cm thick (see photo above). Cut into 2cm wide strips.                           
  5. Gently twist strips while placing them on a greased baking tray.
  6. Bake at 180°C for 10–15 minutes, or until golden. Cool on a wire rack.
