Bread Sticks

We have been using this recipe for a couple of years now and love it. It is really easy too! The last time we made it, we added parm. cheese to the dough before twisting and it turned out delish!

1 1/2 cups warm water
2 TBsp sugar
1 TBSp yeast

Let sit for 5 minutes. Then add,

3 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp salt

Mix until smooth and let sit for 10 more minutes.
Roll out dough on a floured board. Make sure that you have a lot of space to work with when you are rolling these out, or just use half of the dough to start with (that's what I do).
Brush with melted butter and garlic and sprinkle with salt.
Fold in half and cut into 1 inch strips. Twist before placing on cookie sheet.
Let sit for 15 minutes.

Bake at 400* for 7-10 minutes (a few minutes longer if baking on a stone).
Immediately after baking, brush with more garlic butter and sprinkle with salt and grated parmesan cheese.
