I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Soft Breadsticks

I love the breadsticks. These are similar to the ones you get at Olive Garden. Make a little homemade marinara sauce to go along with it or eat it plain.

(makes 12)

*2 tablespoon granulated sugar
*1 teaspoon active dry yeast
*1 cup + 1 tablespoon warm water
*3 cups bread flour
*1 1/2 teaspoons salt
*1/4 cup butter, softened
*2 tablespoons butter, melted
*1/2 teaspoon garlic salt

~Dissolve sugar and yeast in the warm water.
~Let stand for 5 minutes, or until foamy on top.
~Combine flour & salt in a large bowl.
~Mix the softened butter into the flour (use the paddle attachment to your mixer if you have one)
~Pour the foamy yeast mixture into the flour mixture.
~Knead the dough for approximately 10 minutes. (Use dough hook if you have one)
~Place the dough in a covered container and let it sit it a dry warm area until doubled. (about 1 hour)
~Divide the dough into 2 ounce sections. (should make about 12)
~Roll the dough to form 7 inch long sticks.
~Place the dough on parchment paper-lined baking pans.
~Cover, and let rise in a draft free area until doubled. (about 1-1 1/2 hours)
~Preheat ove to 400 degrees.
~Bake for 12 minutes, or until golden brown.
~Remove from oven, and immediately brush with melted butter and sprinkle with a little garlic salt (or sprinkle the garlic spread seasoning I've posted).
