Easy Peasy Breadsticks

With the first of potentially many snow days today, we needed a project. And this was perfect, though very messy, as the pictures will show.

I only made a couple of minor tweaks (brushing on the butter saves you from using more than you need) to the original over on Tasty Kitchen:

1-½ cup warm water
1 Tbl sugar
1 tsp salt
1 Tbl dry active yeast
3-½ cups flour
½ cup melted butter (I used less than this)
1 cup grated parmesan cheese (I also used much less than this)
Garlic salt or powder

Mix together warm water, sugar, salt and yeast. Allow yeast to activate (about 10 minutes). Add flour and stir in with a fork until dough holds together. Turn out onto floured board.

Knead lightly into a ball. Divide into 32-40 equal portions. On floured board, roll out into bread sticks. Brush with melted butter and then sprinkle Parmesan cheese and garlic over the top. Place onto greased cookie sheet (I used 3 cookie sheets to make all of these!) We made one into a ball (well, Jack Henry did) and it cooked up fine, too! We also rolled a few out really thin and then twisted them together.

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. This gives the bread sticks about 10 minutes to begin to rise. Cook at 400 degrees for 15 minutes.

I haven’t tried this, but the author says: May be made in the morning and kept in the refrigerator unbaked. Remove from the refrigerator about 30 – 45 minutes (depending on how warm your house is) before baking.

They were good yesterday, and pretty tough today, though warmed up they still have potential (and I’m sure that the kids will still eat them today). What are you doing to pass the time while you’re snowed in??

this is only a small part of the aftermath. i made them leave their clothes in the kitchen.

i realize this is a horrible picture, but i forgot until last night to take one of the finished product!
