Easy (Divine) Breadsticks

***wow. that's all i have to say about these. that, and i think i ate like 6. (yikes! i did hop on the elliptical that night, at least) between me, rory, justin, and sadie, we had four left out of the whole pan. they are so light and delicious, and tasted similar to the ones from olive garden, which was the plan, since i served them with the zuppa toscana. delicious meal, and it felt like we went out for it! (except i had to do the dishes)

Easy (Divine) Breadsticks
My Kitchen Cafe

*Makes about 20-25 breadsticks, depending on how thick or thin you cut them

1 ½ cups warm water

1 tablespoon instant yeast
2 tablespoons sugar

3 ½ cups flour
½ teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons butter, melted (for the baking sheet)

Mix all ingredients (except melted butter) in a large bowl or electric mixer and knead for three minutes. Let the dough rest for 10 minutes. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Spread melted butter onto an 11X17-inch baking sheet. Roll out the breadstick dough about 1/4 to 1/2-inch thick and cut into strips with a pizza cutter. Twist slightly if desired and place about 1/2-inch apart on the baking sheet. Sprinkle with garlic salt, herbs of choice, and parmesan cheese. Cover with greased plastic wrap and let rise 30 minutes. Bake 15-20 minutes at 375 degrees until golden brown.
