Italian Breadsticks Recipe

Italian Breadsticks Recipe - 20 breadsticks


1/4 teaspoon granulated sugar

1 1/2 cups warm water (100o - 115oF)

1 1/2 teaspoon active dry yeast

3 3/4 cups unbleached flour

2 teaspoons salt

2 tablespoons olive oil

Dab of tub-style safflower margarine


In a small bowl, combine water and sugar, sprinkle yeast over top. Let stand 10 minutes. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, salt and olive oil. Add dissolved yeast and mix with a wooden spoon to form a soft dough.


Knead by hand or by machine, until dough is smooth and elastic. Put dough in a bowl greased with safflower margarine, turning once to coat top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until double in size, about 1 1/2 hours.

Punch dough down and divide into 4 parts. Roll each half into 5 x 8-inch rectangles. Cut each rectangle crosswise into 5 pieces. Roll each piece between palms to a 3/4 x 4-inch rope (Be sure to keep standing dough covered while working). Arrange on nonstick baking pans, cover and let rest 10 minutes.


Bake in a 400oF oven 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to napkin-lined basket and serve at once.
