A few weeks ago, my friend Lindsey came over and we made breadsticks. Neither of us had ever attempted them so we were a little nervous, but really excited to try. Lindsey found a great recipe for breadsticks; it was easy and even more fun to make. We hung out in my kitchen laughing while we made the dough. The breadsticks have a parmesan cheese crust; which makes them so good! I adore anything covered in cheese.
Lindsey had a great idea of dipping the breadsticks in cinnamon and sugar rather than parmesan cheese. You could also put the breadsticks on skewers. Lindsey and I cut the dough and rolled it like we were playing with clay, into snakes. You could also serve the breadsticks with a marinara sauce for dipping, and if you try the cinnamon sugar breadsticks, you could make a frosting to dip them in.
Thanks for making the breadsticks with me Linds. Love you!
Bread Sticks for Kids
1-1/2 Cups warm water
3-1/2 Cups flour
1 Tbsp sugar
1/2 Cup melted butter
1 tsp salt
1 Cup grated parmesan cheese
1 Tbsp dry active yeast
Lemon Pepper or seasoning of choice
Mix together warm water, sugar, salt, and yeast. Allow yeast to activate (about 10 minutes). Add flour and stir in with a fork until dough holds together. Turn out onto floured board. Knead lightly into a ball.
Divide into 32 equal portions. On floured board, roll out into breadsticks.
Dip into melted butter and then into parmesan cheese. Place onto greased cookie sheet. Sprinkle with lemon pepper.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. This gives the breadsticks about 10 minutes to begin to rise.
Cook at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes.
