Hot Sesame Sticks are little pastries with a slight peppery flavor. They make a tasty appetizer and are delicious served with soups or salads.
When I want to make a version that my husband can enjoy, I use vegan butter instead of butter. Hot Sesame Sticks do have Parmesan Cheese in them. Parmesan Cheese is an aged cheese that can be tolerated by some people who have an issue with lactose. Parmesan Cheese is ok for my husband, so just trading vegan butter for butter makes this an appetizer than my husband can enjoy. You can omit the Parmesan Cheese is you want a dairy-free appetizer. Do what is best for your dietary needs. When I make Hot Sesame Sticks for my husband, I cut the cayenne pepper in half because he doesn't like much heat.
Hot Sesame Sticks can be frozen. If you chose to freeze them, pack them in an airtight container so that they retain their shape.
I hope you enjoy!
