Quick Breadsticks

  Did you know that breadsticks are simple to make (and so yummy to eat!) - my friend Renee was always making them and finally I asked for her recipe.  I've been making them ever since - they make a spaghetti dinner seem fancy.  And from start to finish they just take an hour for rising, cooking, etc - perfect.
But first let me tell you that I re-tried the Praline Turtle cake using parchment paper - having the right tool for the job made a HUGE difference - they came right out of the pans.  Mmmm...more than one person said it was the best chocolate cake they've ever had:

Now, on to the breadsticks (I know, those pictures of deliciousness are a hard act to follow).  Renee got the recipe from her mom, so we refer to them as Renee's Mom's Breadsticks:

Breadsticks From Renee’s Mom

1 tbsp yeast

1 ½ C warm water

2 tbsp sugar

½ tsp salt

3 cups flour  (sometimes I put in 1 cup wheat flour, 2 cups regular flour)

Brush with:

½ stick butter

Garlic salt

Parmesan cheese

Dissolve yeast and sugar in warm water. Add salt and flour. Mix together 3 minutes. Raise 20min in bowl.

Melt butter and brush half onto cookie sheet. Roll dough on cookie sheet, covering completely. Cut into 1 inch strips. Brush with butter. Sprinkle with garlic salt and parmesan cheese. Raise 20 min.

Bake 375° for 20 min.

What I love about this recipe, besides it's simplicity and quick prep time, is that I just roll the dough right on to my cookie sheet, like so:
Then I grab the pizza cutter and cut the sheet of dough into breadsticks, like so:
And they come out, like so:
Go whip some up and impress all your family and friends!
