Let's Make It
Cut cheese lengthwise in half; cut each half into 4 sticks. Freeze 15 to 20 min. Meanwhile, mix flour, sugar and salt in large bowl. Add butter; mix with pastry blender or hands until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add water and egg; stir until mixture forms soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface 5 min. or until no longer smooth and elastic; let rest 5 min.
Roll dough into 12x8-inch rectangle; cut into 8 lengthwise strips. Wrap 1 strip around each cheese stick, overlapping dough so cheese is completely enclosed.
Heat oil in medium saucepan to 375ºF. Add cheese wraps in batches; cook 3 to 5 min. or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve warm.
