2
cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
2
teaspoons baking powder
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/2
cup shortening
2/3
cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2
cup finely chopped salami, bologna or fully cooked ham
3/4
cup milk
Ketchup, mustard or cheese dip, if desired
  1. Heat oven to 450ºF. Mix flour, baking powder and salt in medium bowl. Cut in shortening, using pastry blender or crisscrossing 2 knives, until mixture is crumbly. Stir in cheese and salami. Stir in just enough milk until a soft dough forms.
  2. Turn dough onto lightly floured surface. Knead gently 10 times. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Pat dough into 8-inch square; cut square in half. Cut each half crosswise into 1-inch strips. (For crisper sticks, arrange strips to have about 1-inch space between them.)
  3. Bake 12 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm or cool with ketchup, mustard or cheese dip.

Substitution
Any shredded cheese can be used in place of the Cheddar. Try pepper Jack for a snack with "bite". Or go with Swiss for a hint of sweetness.
