  • 1 1/2 cups - warm water
  • 1 packages - active dry yeast
  • 4 1/2 cups - bread flour
  • 2 tablespoons - unsalted butter or margarine, melted
  • 2 tablespoons - sugar
  • 1 tablespoons - salt
  • Garlic Butter
  • 1/2 cups - unsalted butter or margarine
  • 1 teaspoons - garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoons - salt
  • Directions:

    In large mixer bowl, dissolve sugar and yeast in warm water and allow to sit for 10 minutes, until mixture is frothy. Add flour, salt, and melted butter to yeast mixture; mix with dough hook or paddle attachment of stand mixer or with a spoon until fully combined. If using mixer, continue to mix on low speed for a few minutes to accomplish kneading; if not using mixer, knead dough by hand for a few minutes (adding flour if necessary) just until dough is smooth. Do not over knead!
    Grease a baking sheet. Divide dough into 12 even pieces and roll each piece out into a strip roughly 8 inches long; then place on prepared baking sheet. Cover and let sit in a warm place for one hour.
    Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and bake bread sticks for 6-7 minutes. While they bake, prepare garlic butter by melting butter and stirring in garlic powder and salt. After bread sticks have baked for 6-7 minutes, remove from oven and brush bread sticks with half the garlic butter mixture.
    Return the bread sticks to the oven and continue to bake for 6-8 more minutes until lightly browned. After removing from oven, immediately brush the other half of garlic butter onto sticks, and allow to cool for a few minutes before eating.
