    Sea Salt Sticks

    1 review

    When my daughter was in school, her class had a recipe exchange party. The kids would bring something to eat to share with the class and include the recipe. My daughter came home with several recipes, but she raved about the delicious Sea Salt Sticks she had and wanted to make them for the family. They go well with spaghetti! You may even add 2 tablespoons poppy seeds to the flour before mixing. —Marina Castle Kelley, Canyon Country, CA
