2/3
cup milk
1
package (8 oz) plain or smoked string cheese
1
can (8 oz) pizza sauce
1
tablespoon butter or margarine, melted
1/4

  • 1 Heat oven to 450°F. In medium bowl, stir Bisquick mix and milk until soft dough forms; beat 30 seconds with spoon. Place dough on surface sprinkled with Bisquick mix; gently roll in Bisquick mix to coat. Shape into a ball; knead 10 times.
  • 2 Roll dough into 12x8-inch rectangle, 1/4 inch thick. Cut into 8 (6x2-inch) rectangles. Roll each rectangle around 1 piece of cheese. Pinch edge into roll to seal; seal ends. Roll on surface to completely enclose cheese sticks. On ungreased cookie sheet, place sticks seam sides down.
