This recipe for hot, homemade buttery breadsticks is pretty simple. They’re just the best with any pasta or a simple salad.
You can also sprinkle these breadsticks with parmesan cheese and garlic salt or cinnamon sugar!
1 1/2 cups warm (105-115 degrees) water
1 tbsp sugar
1 tbsp yeast
1/2 tsp salt
3-4 1/2 cups flour
cinnamon & sugar
In a KitchenAid bowl combine water, sugar, and yeast. Let stand for 10 minutes or until yeast is bubbly. Add salt and stir. Add 1 1/2 c. flour and mix well. Gradually add more flour (I think I used 4 cups) until dough starts to pull away from the sides of the bowl and it barely sticks to your finger. Spray a glass bowl with cooking spray and place dough in the bowl. Cover and allow to rise for 45 minutes or until doubled in bulk.
Remove from bowl and place on a lightly-floured surface. Roll into a rectangle and cut into 12 strips with a pizza cutter. Twist each strip around a wooden skewer (make sure you’ve soaked the skewers in water for 10 minutes and spray with Pam before doing this).
Place on baking sheet (spray with Pam) and repeat with remaining 11 pieces of dough. Try to space them evenly, but it’s okay if they’re close. Cover pan and allow dough to rise for another 30 minutes. When there’s about 15 minutes to go, preheat your oven to 425.
When done rising, bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Rub some butter on top of the breadsticks and sprinkle with powdery Parmesan cheese and garlic salt. You can also sprinkle them with cinnamon sugar!
