Recipe : Soft Garlic Breadsticks

I snagged this one from AllRecipes, here:   They turned out quite good, but I would choose to increase the garlic if making them again.

Soft Garlic Breadsticks


2-1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast (1 pkg)
1 1/8 cups water (70 to 80 degrees F)
2 tablespoons olive or canola oil
3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons sugar
3 teaspoons garlic powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoon minced fresh basil
3 cups bread flour
about 1/4 cup garlic butter, melted
approx 1/2 cup shredded cheese - mozzarella, parmesan, and/or cheddar

Dissolve yeast in warm water and let rest until foamy.  Mix oil, cheese, sugar, garlic powder, salt and basil in a large bowl.  Add yeast.  Add flour one cup at a time, mixing well.  Turn out on a floured surface and knead until smooth, the dough should be soft but not sticky.  Cover and let rest in a warm place until doubled, about one hour.

Punch down and divide into 12-18 pieces.   Roll into logs and arrange on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, or lightly greased.  Brush each with melted butter.  Sprinkle with shredded cheese.

Bake at 350 degrees for 18-22 minutes until lightly browned.  Brush lightly with melted butter while still warm.  Best served hot.
