Soft Italian Breadsticks

Not Pretty, but Delicious

I have yet to master the process of making these look pretty, but they still are tastey. They are really yummy dipped in Alfredo Sauce.

1 c. water
3 Tbsp. butter or margarine, softened
1 ½ tsp. salt
3 c. flour
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
1 tsp. garlic powder
2 ¼ tsp. (1 packet) active dry yeast

1 Tbsp. butter or margarine, melted
1 Tbsp. grated parmesan cheese
1 tsp. garlic salt

1. In bread machine pan, place the first eight ingredients in order suggested by manufacturer. Select dough setting (check dough after 5 minutes; add 1 to 2 Tbsp. or water or flour if needed).
2. When cycle is complete, turn dough onto a lightly flour surface; divide in half. Cut each portion into 12 pieces; roll each into a 4” to 6” rope. Place 2 inches apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled, about 20 minutes.
3. Bake at 350° for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately brush with butter; sprinkle with parmesan cheese and garlic salt. Serve warm.

Yield: 2 dozen
