Sos Rud (Savory Cottage Cheese Sticks)

These sticks are awesome. They can be made longer or as shown on the picture, can be with white sesame seeds, black sesame seeds, fennel seeds, cumin seeds, grated cheese, or anything you can think of !

But of course, in Hungary, where these sticks are from, people would shape them longer than what I did, nevertheless, these are so good, almost similar to Indonesian cookies called Kaastengel 🙂

500 g AP flour

500 g cottage cheese

1 egg

250 g vegetable shortening (you can use lard if you wish)

1 envelope/pouch of baking powder (depending on the brand, Dr. Oetker usually 12 gram while others are 15 gram, either is fine)

1 tsp of salt

3-4 tbsp sour cream

For topping, you will need:

1 egg

sesame seeds, fennel, etc

Method:

Cut shortening into flour until crumbly texture, add in the rest of the ingredients, knead. Divide dough into 2 portions, roll flat each, brush with beaten egg, and slice with knife (if you have cookie cutter as shown on the picture, by all mean, use it as it is easier, but it gives shorter sticks). Sprinkle with any toppings of your choice, I used white sesame seeds this time. Bake at preheated 200 C (395 F) for 20-25 minutes (until golden).
