"I make these bread sticks by the hundreds every year and my kids take them to school for snacks. The dough can be made in the bread machine, or you can double it and make it in a stand mixer."

Yum, this recipe turned out wonderfully with some slight changes! I made this recipe the traditional way w/out a bread machine by proofing yeast w/ 1 tbs honey and warm water for about 10mins. Then added the rest of the ingredients (I cup of flour at a time until elastic), kneaded the dough for about 6-8 mins and let it rise until doubled. Changes: • I made these into 12 large sweet rolls instead of breadsticks. Since the dough is pretty sweet I didn’t add any additional sugar, I just left out the seeds. If you are making breadsticks I'd decrease the sugar to 2-3 tbs. and you might want to try adding some garlic, oregano, and onion powder to the dough to make it really tasty. • The trick to getting a crunchy exterior is by spraying the dough with oil before baking. You will get a better texture if you use bread four instead of all-purpose (although, all-purpose still works well). If you are still getting a tough breadstick try decreasing the sugar (sugar competes with the yeast for liquid), and/or increase the butter to 4 tbs). Wonderful recipe besides those small changes!!!

SENSATIONAL! I am having company from out of town tomorrow, and will be serving a spaghetti and meatball dinner. I wanted something extra special and different for a bread. After finding this one, I decided to try it. Ite was easy and wonderful! However, instead of rolling the dough into 18 separate balls and then rolling them out individually, I rolled the dough into a rectangle, and took a pizza cutter, cutting the dough into strips. It worked perfectly, and was time saving. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!

These were great. Crunchy on the outside and soft and chewy inside. I added garlic powder, oregano, basil, and parsley to the dough. I used the stand mixer and did not double the recipe. I kneaded by hand for aobut 10 minutes, and let the dough rest for 10 minutes before shaping.
