Love crunchy breadsticks? Then you’ll love these!
Yield: Serves 4
1 package regular active dry yeast
1 cup warm water (105°F to 115°F)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
In large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add oil, salt and 2 1/2 cups of the flour; mix until soft dough forms. Place dough on lightly floured work surface; knead in enough remaining 1/2 cup flour until dough is no longer sticky.
Grease large bowl with oil or shortening. Place dough in bowl, turning dough to grease all sides. Cover bowl loosely with plastic wrap; let rise in warm place about 2 hours or until dough has doubled in size. Dough is ready if indentation remains when touched.
Spray cookie sheets with cooking spray. Place dough on lightly floured work surface; lightly sprinkle top of dough with flour. Roll into 18x12-inch rectangle. Cut crosswise into 1/3-inch-wide strips. Place strips on cookie sheets. Cover loosely; let rise in warm place 30 minutes or until puffed.
Heat oven to 400°F. Spray tops of breadsticks with cooking spray; sprinkle with cheese.
Bake 15 to 20 minutes, turning once, until golden brown. Remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks; cool before serving.
