These cheese sticks are made with a little cayenne and sour cream. Chill for 2 hours before baking.

They make an excellent game day snack, or make them for a party.

I've used other recipes for cheese sticks, but always seem to lose the bits of paper I copy them on and end up looking for the recipe on the internet (sooooo convenient). I tried this one because it includes sour cream and it worked well, giving a subtle complement to the cayenne pepper. But I think the best thing about this was reading Trinity Persaud's very cute short life history in her review!
