Yummy Breadsticks

A friend in my ward brought these to a lunch we were having.  They were so yummy and she said they were really easy to make, so I had to have the recipe.  They are perfect for dunking in soup.  My friend said that the dough is actually a basic white bread dough, that you can use for cinnamon rolls, regular rolls etc.  One tip is that if you don't have instant yeast it would probably be best to soak it in a little water with sugar before adding.   I also did this all in my bosch and did not mix by hand or knead by hand.   So here you go...

3 - 3 1/2 cups white flour
1 Tab. dry yeast
1 tesp. salt
1/4 cup sugar (1/8 is fine)
1 cup milk or 1/3 cup powdered milk (church kind) and 1 cup water
3 Tab. butter or marg.
1 egg beaten

In large mixing bowl, combine 1 cup flour with dry yeast, salt and sugar.  In sauce pan, heat milk and butter until very warm (not hot)...or cook approx. 2 min. in microwave; add to flour mixture along with egg. With mixer beat two minutes.  By hand stir in remaining 2 to 2 1/4 cups flour to form a stiff dough.  Cover and let rise.  Turn out onto a floured surface.  Knead a few times or until no longer sticky.  Make into rolls, breadsticks or cinnamon rolls.  Let rise in greased pan.  Bake for 20 min. at 350 degrees.

For breadsticks, roll out until flat then cut into strips.  Dip into melted butter then twist and place in pan.  Once the pan is full, before baking, sprinkle with garlic powder and parm. cheese.
