Easy Homemade Breadsticks

I love the smell of yeast!  I don't make a lot of bread or rolls, but I do make these breadsticks ALL the time (I could make them in my sleep).  I got this recipe from my friend several years ago.  The first time I made them I was a bit nervous because I hadn't had a lot of experience with yeast.  I was pleasantly surprised with how well they turned out- even after my first try.  I do have to say they turn out better than they used to (that practice thing really works :)).  I know how much flour is too much, and what the dough should feel like.
These are really easy- easy ingredients and easy to make.

Easy Homemade Breadsticks
1 1/2 C. warm water
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 C. butter melted
1 Tbsp. yeast
3 1/4 C. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
Our Best Bites garlic bread seasoning (I make a bunch of this and keep it in a jar in my fridge)

Preheat oven to 350º.  Dissolve yeast in water.  Add sugar.  Watch for bubbles to form. Make dough with yeast mixture, flour , and salt.  (Dough will be very sticky, but that's okay.  You'll add more flour when you're kneading. The trick is to keep the dough as wet as possible, yet still workable).  Knead for three minutes and  let rise for 10 minutes.  Roll out right away on a floured surface to about 1/2 inch thick.  Cut dough into strips (I use a pizza cutter) and dip into butter.  Place onto baking sheet.  Sprinkle with garlic bread seasoning.  Let rise for 15-20 minutes.  Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. 

We eat these breadsticks with spaghetti sauce most of the time.  They're also great with alfredo sauce.   You  can dip them in anything you like.  You can also change the topping.  I've used just garlic powder, kosher salt, and parmesan before.  I haven't tried it, but I bet cinnamon and sugar would be good on top for a sweet breadstick.  You could dip them in frosting!  Get creative- the possibilities are endless!
