Twisted Breadsticks

A friend of mine gave me this recipe a few years ago, and it was fast to become a favorite in our family. I must warn you, it is impossible to stop at just one!

Twisted Breadsticks

1 1/2 C. warm water
1 T. yeast
4 C. flour
2 T. sugar
1 t. salt

1 cube margarine
3/4 C. parmesan cheese (in the green plastic canister kind)
garlic salt

Combine water and yeast (let yeast do it thing) then add sugar, salt and 2 C. flour. Mix together. Slowly add remaining 2 C. flour until dough clings to hook. Let double in bulk. (about 30 mins.)

Melt margarine, add parmesan cheese, 1 to 1 1/2 teas. garlic salt (to your liking, I use closer to 1 teas.) and sprinkle in a pinch of basil. (optional)

Coat bottom of baking sheet with margarine mixture.

Roll dough into rectangle between 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. Cut into 1 inch strips, fold in half, stretch and twist together at the same time so that the breadstick is approx. as long as the width of your baking sheet. Continue until all dough is gone, placing breadsticks next to each other on the baking sheet (this will help them to rise together). Coat the top of breadsticks with margarine mixture and let rise another 30 mins. Bake at 400 for 15 minutes or until parmesan cheese starts to turn golden brown.

These are so yummy, my mouth is watering and I just had them last night. Enjoy!
