twisting...

twisting, twisting the night away...











i had to make these after seeing her darling tv performance...

Pizza Factory Twisted Breadsticks

bread

1 T. yeast
2 T. sugar
1 1/2 C. warm water
1 T. oil
1 tsp. salt
3 1/2 C. flour

brush with 1/4 c butter before baking

melt and brush out of the oven

1/2 C. melted butter
3/8 tsp. granulated garlic
1/2 tsp. dried rosemary leaves
1/4 tsp. Season All
1 T. Parmesan cheese

8 - 1/4 inch wooden dowels
or 8 - 12 inch skewers

Mix the yeast, sugar and water and let sit for a couple of minutes to dissolve the yeast. Add the oil, salt and flour and knead by hand or with your mixer with a dough hook for about 5 minutes. Cover and let rise until double.

Divide dough into 8 equal parts. Lightly flour your hands and roll the dough into about an 16-18 inch long "snake". Moisten the top of your dowel or skewer and begin wrapping the dough around loosely. Moisten a little where the breadstick will end too. Pinch to secure the dough at the top and bottom. Leave about 5 inches at the end of the dowel, if you are using the longer dowels. Hang over the edge of a 9x13 inch cake pan with all of the dough inside the pan.

Let them rise until doubled.

Brush with 1/4 C. melted butter. Bake at 375 for about 15- 20 minutes or until just golden.

mix the remaining 1/2 C. melted butter, seasonings and parmesan cheese. When the breadsticks come out of the oven, brush them with the seasoned melted butter mixture.

*mine did not look like hers, i did not follow the recipe correctly and added butter into the recipe... they still were delish, but not as big and pouffy as they should have been. they are fun to make and darling to share with others, a huge hit here.
