Hungarian Cheese biscuits recipe

So the promised cheese sticks recipe. They're really yummy and dangerous we usually can't stop eating them.
Pictures are in this blog post. Enjoy!

Sajtos rúd (Cheese biscuits)

  • Generous 4 cups unbleached all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 200 ml milk
  • 1/3 of (2oz.) fresh cake yeast, or 1 - 0.25 oz pk. dry yeast
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 2 Tbsp kosher salt
  • scant ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 egg for glaze
  • 1 package (8 oz.) shredded cheese (provolone, mexican blend, mozzarella, any will do)
Warm up the milk until just warm, and put the sugar to dissolve. Put yeast, cover and let it stand in a warm place for a few minutes until yeast starts to bubble.
Sift the flour. Add the remaining ingredients including the milk-yeast mixture and work together to form a smooth dough. If it's too sticky add some flour until the dough separates from the bowl. Roll out and fold across and up, so that the dough is four layers thick rectangle. Wrap it in saran wrap and let it rest for 20 minutes in the refrigerator. Repeat the process twice more. Then roll out the pastry to a thickness of just under ¼ inch and spread a beaten egg and shredded cheese on top. Cut into strips with a pizza cutter, then cut them up to sticks. Place these on a baking pan lined with parchment paper, and bake in a preheated 375 F oven for 22-25 minutes until golden.

'Til we blog again! :)


  1. I may have to hop on a plane and come over for some of those!!! I'm making rolls and can't keep myself from picking at the dough.. Oh the joy and the pain of making GOOD bread :) I can't wait to try your recipe :)

  2. Pinning this one! Thanks for the recipe :)

  3. Kati, there are a number of older machines in which it is difficult to drop or then raise up feed dogs. You can bypass the bother by using a Super Slider or a 3X5 recipe card with a little hole punched in it.
