Soft Italian Breadsticks

I made these breadsticks to go with our Alfredo last night.  We really liked them.  They were SO good dipped in the alfredo sauce.  For me...the sauce and breadsticks could be my entire meal.  I adapted the recipe that I found here.

Soft Italian Breadsticks


1 cup warm water (70 to 80)
3 tablespoons soft butter
1 ½ teaspoons salt
3 cups bread flour (I used all-purpose flour)
2 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1 teaspoon garlic powder
2 ¼ teaspoons active dry yeast

1 tablespoon melted butter
1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese


Place all dough ingredients in your mixer(Kitchen-Aid or Bosch).  Mix well and knead in mixer for 5 minutes.  After the dough kneads in the mixer turn it out onto a floured board and divide dough in half.  Cut each portion into 12 pieces and roll each piece into a 4 to 6" rope.  Take 2 'ropes' and twist together.  Place 2" apart onto greased baking sheets.  Cover and let rise in a warm place for about 20 minutes or until doubled.  Bake at 350° for 10 minutes, brush with butter and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, return to oven and continue to bake for another 5-7 minutes or until golden brown.  Note: Be careful not to overbake or they will become tough.
