Butter Dips

I like these bread sticks because I can whip them up in a hurry if company drops in unexpectedly (which happens often since my husband is a minister!). Most folks are amazed that a recipe this easy can taste so good!

  • Makes
    32 breadsticks


  • 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 3-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 to 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • Sesame seeds, garlic salt, onion salt or celery salt


  • In large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and cheese; add milk. Stir slowly with fork. When dough clings together, turn onto well-floured surface. On a floured surface, knead gently 10 times. Roll dough into 12x8-in. rectangle.
  • Cut dough in half lengthwise with sharp knife, then into 16 strips. Place butter in a 13x9-in. baking pan. Dip both sides of strips in melted butter. Place 2 rows in pan. Sprinkle with topping of your choice. Bake at 450° for 12-15 minutes. Serve immediately.

    Super buttery, to the point where they are crunchy rather than moist. It was a little too rich for my taste

    i have made these for many years. Found the recipe in a 1950's Betty Crocker Recipe book. This was a favorite of my students in Foods classes for 30 years. We also sprinkled cinnamon and sugar over the dips when we made them without the cheese. Garlic was also a great addition to the dough. Oregano was a great addition to the plain dough too.

    If these were round, I would call them cheddar biscuits. I misunderstood the directions, so mine were twice the size as the picture since I cut 16 total strips. We ate them with Round Steak Chili, and the leftovers were great reheated for breakfast.

    My girls and I have made this recipe without the cheddar cheese for years. Had never thought to add cheese but will try that next time. These are so DELISH with spaghetti and a nice salad and you might want to double as they don't last long and if they do, are good to just munch on the next day. Thanks for the recipe!!
