These breadsticks are soft & wonderful & make the house smell so great while baking.  If you haven't tried making bread, try this easy recipe.  They are really addictive!

1 T. yeast
2 T. sugar
1 1/2 cups warm water
1 t. salt
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup butter, melted
Toppings:  choose parmesan cheese, Johnny's Garlic Spread & Seasoning, dried parsley or rosemary, sesame seeds or poppy seeds, etc

1.  Mix the yeast, sugar & warm water.  Add the salt & flour & knead for 5 minutes.  I used my Kitchen Aid mixer with the dough hook.

2.  Spray the top of the dough with Pam.  Cover with plastic wrap & let rise until double.  This takes about 1 hour.

3.  Place the melted butter in a large rimmed baking sheet. 

4.  Roll the dough out on a lightly floured counter into a 15 x 20 inch rectangle.  Using a pizza cutter, cut the dough into 12 strips.  Taking one strip at a time, dip the strip into the butter & then fold in half & twist.

5.  Place all the breadsticks in the baking sheet.  Sprinkle the breadsticks with your choice of toppings.  I used the Johnny's Garlic Spread & Seasoning on mine, which you can buy at Costco.

6.  Cover & let rise for 1/2 hour.

7.  Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.
