Soft Homemade Breadsticks

I made these soft breadsticks from Min's blog. I was paired with Min for Taste and Create who is guest hosting the event for this month.Taste and Create is an event hosted by Nicole where each one gets a partner and cooks from your partner's blog. I found a lot of wonderful recipes for baking and cooking. These breadsticks tempted me a lot. I made these beauties immediately and we had it with pumpkin-zucchini soup. They turned out soft and chewy. I froze half of the batch. We also had a few of them just with some marinara sauce. It is a basic recipe and I made no changes to the original recipe. I just halved the recipe.

Ingredients (Makes around 2 dozen breadsticks)

Yeast - 1 tablespoon
Water - 1 1/4 cup
Melted butter - 2 tablespoons
Sugar / honey - 1 tablespoon
SAlt - 1 teaspoon
Flour - 4 cups
Garlic salt

Directions

Dissolve the yeast and sugar in lukewarm water.When it turns frothy in about 5 minutes, add the salt, melted butter and flour and mix well. Add more flour if necessary.Knead to form a smooth, elastic dough. Place in agreased bowl and cover with a tea towel.

Punch down for every 10 minutes. Do this for atleast 5 to 6 times.

With the help of a rolling pin, roll the dough into one inch thick. Cut into strips of required length with a knife or pizza cutter. Brush with melted butter. Top with garlic salt.You can also use parmesan cheese, parseley or any dry herbs for the topping.Place on a baking sheet and let it rise for about half an hour.

Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degree F for about 15 minutes until lightly browned. Do not overbake it might turn hard.

Serve warm!
