Bread Sticks

Recipe Name: Bread Sticks

Notes: An old favorite.

Servings: 8

  • 1 1/2 cups warm water
  • 1 Tbs. honey
  • 1 Tbs. yeast
  • 1 Tbs. malted milk powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 4-4 1/2 cups flour (3 3/4 cups may suffice...)
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • parmesan cheese, coarse salt, poppy seeds, or sesame seeds
Directions: Pour 1 1/2 cups water in a bowl. Add 1 tablespoon honey and 1 tablespoon yeast. To this mixture add 1 tablespoon malted milk powder and 1 teaspoon salt. Blend in flour with a wooden spoon to form a ball. Divide into 8 equal pieces and roll each until it is 10 to 12 inches in length. Place breadsticks on a greesed baking sheet and brush with beaten egg. Sprinkle with parmesan, poppy seeds, etc. Let breadsticks rise for 10 to 15 minutes (though if you don't have time this is not totally necessary). Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.

I love these breadsticks. But when I tried to make them my dough was really really sticky. It's pretty humid here, so that might be part of it, and we also didn't have the malted milk powder. Hmm. They're in the oven now. We'll see how they turn out.
