Sometimes you just need the goodness of a homemade breadstick. I felt that way last Sunday and wanted to make something to satisfy my craving. I used to believe that Sunday was a day of rest, but once I get baking and cooking, it becomes a day of food madness! But these babies were worth it! They don’t take long and they are easy to make. You can have hot, buttery, parmesan breadsticks in one hour!
Homemade Parmesan Breadsticks
- 1 ½ cups warm water
- 3 Tablespoons sugar
- 1 Tablespoon active dry yeast
- 3 ½ cup all purpose flour
- 2 teaspoon salt
To Brush on top
- 4 Tablespoons butter, melted
- 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
In a small bowl mix the water, yeast and sugar together and let sit for 10 minutes.
In the bowl of your mixer add the flour and salt and mix. Pour the yeast water to the bowl and using the dough hook mix for a couple minutes until smooth. Let the dough rise for 15 minutes.
Roll out the dough on a floured surface into a large square. Brush the top with melted butter then sprinkle with the parmesan cheese. Fold the dough in half and cut into 15 to 20 strips.
Twist each strip and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. Let the twists sit for another 15 minutes to rise.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
Bake the breadsticks for 15 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. When they come out of the oven, brush the top with remaining butter.
