Apple Sticks

These apple sticks are a nice treat for fall when the apples are plentiful. Use your favorite apple and cheddar cheese. Make sure you have caramel sauce/ice cream topping available to dip the 'sticks'.
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 3/4 cup apples, shredded
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Caramel sauce/ice cream topping
  1. Whisk together the first 4 ingredients.
  2. Cut in butter and stir in cheese.
  3. Stir in apples and milk.
  4. Knead just enough to form into a ball. 
  5. Using a dusting of flour on counter roll out dough to 1/4" thickness.
  6. Cut into finger lengths approximately 1" wide.
  7. Deep fry in hot oil until golden brown. ( I fried 4 sticks at a time, this takes 2 minutes)
  8. Place on paper towels to absorb excess oil. 
  9. Mix together 2 tablespoons sugar and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon on a plate. Roll each apple stick in the mixture coating each side.
  10. Serve warm caramel sauce in individual little bowls for each person for dipping.
  11. Yield: 15 apple sticks (in case someone is counting not all the apple sticks made it to the serving tray for photos.


  1. I wonder if these can be baked rather than fried?

    1. I have not baked these but it would be worth a try. Sometimes deep fried just tastes best:)

  2. I would do well with a couple of these sticks today! They look delightful ♥

  3. These look pretty amazing Ellen. Love the combo of apple and cheese with that yummy caramel sauce.

  4. My goodness. I've never seen an item like this. I'll have to try!

  5. Must give these a try! So unique and they sound delicious.
