Back-to-school (NC) - September is an exciting and sometimes anxious time for kids of all ages who are heading back to school. What can help calm their nerves (and yours) is a daily routine for the new school year... depending on their age, they should know their homework and play times, weeknight bedtimes, etc.
Make this a special time of year - Create enthusiasm for the new school year by inviting children to help prepare for their first day. Here are some ideas:
If kids don't have time to eat at home in the morning, pack them a banana, a small yogurt cup and a few of these delicious breakfast sticks so they can eat on the way.
Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in mixing bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in cheese, bacon and green onion. Mix well. Add yogurt all at once to dry ingredients, stirring to moisten.
Turn out onto lightly floured surface and knead 10 - 15 times to form a smooth dough; mixture will be crumbly at first and comes together when kneaded. Roll out or pat to an 8" (20 cm) square.
Cut in half lengthwise, then cut each half into 6 rectangles. Place on ungreased baking sheet.
Bake at 450 F (230 C) for 10 - 15 minutes, or until golden. Serve warm.
Preparation Time: 20 minutes - Baking Time: 15 minutes
Serving Size: Makes 12 Sticks
