Homemade Caraway Cheese Breadsticks

   
   Although in my last recipe I wasn't ready to give up summer, I am already thinking about Christmas 😀. Christmas is one of my favorite holiday. I just love the baked goods smells in the whole house, the big tree in the living room, the carols, the gifts, everything! So, this week I decided to make something that reminds me of Christmas: homemade caraway cheese breadsticks. Oh, and that delicious smell I had in the whole house....


   The great thing about these homemade caraway cheese breadsticks is that you can make them ahead. If you store them properly, you can make them with 4-5 days before Christmas.

   Here are the ingredients you will need:
- 500 gr flour
- 200 gr butter
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon salt
- 120 ml milk
- 25 gr fresh yeast
- 1 big spoon caraway seeds (or more).
  For the topping, you will need:
- 1 egg
- cheddar cheese (or any other hard cheese).


   Put the flour on the wooden board and add the salt. Cut the butter into small pieces (you can use the fork) and add it to the flour. Add the egg, and make sure you combine all the ingredients. You can use your hand, or you can use a fork.
  Dissolve the yeast in the milk, and add it to the composition. Make sure you work with yeast correctly, if you are having doubts, please read this helpful article.
   
   Add the caraway seeds and knead well until the dough is smooth and it pulls away from the wooden board. If you are not comfortable using a wooden board for kneading, just use a large bowl. 
    After you finished kneading, cover the dough with a clean hand towel, and let it rest for about 1 hour at room temperature.
   When the dough is ready, take a handful of it and spread it out using a rolling pin, onto the wooden board as thick as you want your breadsticks to be. 




   Using a dough cutter like in the image below, cut the dough in any shape you want. 

   
   I usually make the breadsticks rectangle, but you can play a little if you want. You can make them square, round or even heart-shaped. After you cut them in the desired shape, grate some cheese on top.





   Prepare your baking tray (make sure you use baking paper or spray). Put the caraway cheese breadsticks onto the tray, and arrange them a little so they can fit more. Beat up the remained egg, and brush the breadsticks with it.


   Bake at medium temperature for about 20 minutes, or until they turn golden brown.



    You can also prepare something delicious for your hubby next Valentines 😍
   I don't know about you, but I really love these delicious caraway cheese breadsticks. They go perfectly with a warm cup of milk, or even with a cold beer. I usually make them for Christmas, but I can be impatient, so I often bake them in the fall.




   If you put them in an airtight container after they have cooled, these breadsticks can last up to one week.




   What do you think? Would you give them a try? How would you choose them to eat? With a warm cup of milk or with a cold beer? Let me know in the comments, and also don't forget to pin/share!
Happy Baking!
