Romanian Cheesesticks (Saratele)

Posted on May 12, 2013. Filed under: Uncategorized |


As my husband is from Romania, I enjoy finding new Romanian recipes written out in English on the internet.  Otherwise, I would probably have a few catastrophes with my husband translating cooking terminology.  I will never forget the experience I had in Romania getting my hair dyed a different color with my husband translating.  It’s safe to say, I will never do that again!  These Cheese Sticks are from Jo Cooks blog.  If you are looking for other good Romanian recipes, check out her website!

Romanian Cheese Sticks (Saratele)


  • 1 1/4 cup(250 g) ricotta cheese
  • Just under 1 cup (200 g) plain yogurt
  • 1 egg yolk
  • Just under 1 cup – 7/8 cup (200 g) butter or margarine
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 25 g fresh yeast or 1 tsp active dry yeast
  • 4 cups (500 g) all purpose flour
  • Parmesan cheese, shredded
  • caraway seeds, optional
  • 1 egg for brushing


In a large bowl mix the yeast, yogurt, ricotta cheese, melted butter or margarine, salt and the egg yolk together. Now add the flour and mix well, by hand or with a mixer.



Cover the dough and place in fridge over night or for 3-4 hours in the day.


 Flour your work surface and roll out the dough. You can cut them in any shapes you want, but traditionally they are cut into long sticks. Make sure the dough is about 1/4 inch or 1/2 cm thick. Brush with egg wash, and sprinkle parmesan cheese and caraway seeds on each stick.  I chose just to add parmesan cheese this time.


Bake for about 20 min at 375 degrees or until golden brown.


Enjoy the Cheese Sticks, because they disappear quick!
