Kids Praise Mom for Good Food, Mom Faints, has yet to be revived.

Early last summer I was drying parsley and basil like it was my job. Every Saturday I'd go out and pick a bunch of each, then come in and dry the leaves in the oven for saving for the winter. I wanted to do something with those spices for our family canning exchange but didn't want to just give spices. I found the recipe ended up using was Garlic Bread Seasoning (see recipe a few back). The suggested use for the seasoning was on these breadsticks.
These breadsticks won me "these are so good!" from my kids. So YES this recipe is a winner.
These were very easy to make - the hardest part was the even cutting and twisting, but once they rise, any struggles you’ve had disappear. What's better is once you serve them - no one will complain your cuts and twists aren't perfect - they'll be raving over the amazing breadsticks you've made.
These aren't Olive Garden Breadsticks, but they are a soft delicious breadstick worth the time and effort.
Next year? I look forward to more herb growing and drying. That reminds me - I need to order my seeds!!

1 1/2 cups warm water (105 - 110 degrees F°)
1 Tablespoon instant yeast
1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 cups all-purpose flour
In a large bowl, or in the bowl of a stand-mixer, add warm water, instant yeast, sugar and salt. Stir to combine (using the dough hook if in the stand-mixer)
Add 2 cups flour and mix well. Gradually add in the rest of the flour until dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl and sticks to your finger a little bit. (Remember to only add up to 4 cups flour total. Adding too much flour will make the breadsticks too dense and not soft.)
Cover bowl and allow to rise 30 minutes or until doubled in size.
Remove dough from bowl and place on a clean and lightly-floured surface. Spray a large baking sheet with non-stick spray. Roll dough into a large rectangle, about 1-inch thick, and cut into 12 strips with a pizza cutter.
Roll out each piece of dough into a long rope then twist. Place dough twist onto prepared baking sheet and repeat with the rest of dough, placing side by side on baking sheet.
Cover and let rest 30 minutes to rise again until doubled.
Preheat oven to 425° F. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden-brown. Remove from oven and rub a 1/2 stick of butter over the warm breadsticks. Sprinkle tops evenly with Garlic Bread Seasoning! http://myrtlegrace.blogspot.com/2017/12/ipema-family-canning-exchange-2017-wee.html
