  • 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.

Expert Tips

  • 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.
  • Plan to make these kid-friendly snacks when you have leftover meat from another meal. What a delicious way to clean out the fridge!
