Danish when arrived in Brazil, tried to reproduce the Danbo cheese, but for the differences of milk, came another cheese similar to original, the prato cheese. It's soft, yellow, tasteful and very familiar here in Brazil. We made a delicious recipe with this delectable cheese. The sticks have a gentle flavor, crisp dough, and the perfect shape for nibble. Don't let to make these so appetizing snack!

300g flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
200g prato cheese, finely grated
100g butter, cold cut in small cubes
1 egg
2 tbsp cold water

Preheat the oven to 390˚F.
In a bowl, sift together flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Add cheese and cold butter. Carefully, rub with your fingertips, do not leave the butter melt. When the mixture resembles to bread crumbs, add egg and cold water, kneading just to make a smooth dough. Do not overmix.
Make thinly sticks and bake for 10-15 minutes. Let cool on a rack.

Cook's tip: If you don't find the prato cheese, use Danbo cheese or even Cheddar.
It's important the ingredients and bowl to be cold, don't let the dough to be warm during the process. If necessary, chill in fridge.

Serve: 60 sticks.
