3⁄4 cup whole-wheat flour
3⁄4 cup white flour, plus extra for rolling
1⁄4 tsp salt
2 tbsp light margarine, chilled
… 3 tbsp freshly grated
1 large egg
2 tbsp skim milk
1 tsp paprika
1 tbsp sesame seeds
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Sift the flours & salt into a bowl. Stir in the margarine until the mixture resembles fine bread crumbs. Stir in the Parmesan cheese.
Whisk the egg & milk together. Reserve 1 tsp of this mixture, & stir the rest into the dry ingredients to form a firm dough. Knead on a lightly floured surface until smooth.
Sprinkle the paprika over the floured surface, then roll the dough out on it to form a 9-in. square. Brush the dough with the reserved egg mixture and sprinkle with the sesame seeds. Cut the square of dough in half, then cut into 4 1⁄2-in. strips that are about 1⁄2-in. wide.
Coat baking sheet with cooking spray & line with parchment Paper. Twist the sticks and place on the baking sheet, lightly pressing the ends of the sticks down so that they do not untwist during baking.
Bake 15 mins or until lightly browned and crisp. Cool on the baking sheet for a few mins, then serve warm, or transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
