3/4 c. warm water (about 110 F)
Breadstick dough on greased sheet
1 1/8 tsp. yeast
1 Tbsp. butter, melted
1 Tbsp. sugar
1 tsp. salt
2 1/4 c. flour

1 Tbsp. butter, melted
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. garlic powder

In a large bowl, dissolve the yeast in warm water. Let sit at least 5 minutes. Add the melted butter, sugar, and salt to the yeast mixture. Mix in the flour. If you have dough hooks, now would be the time to use them. If not, stir the flour together to form a dough, then knead on a lightly floured counter top for 2-3 minutes. Place the dough in a bowl, cover, and let rest for 45 minutes. I find that if you set the resting dough on the stove top and turn the oven on to the lowest setting, it helps the yeast to work.

Hot breadsticks!
After 45 minutes, cut the dough into 8 separate pieces. Shape into breadsticks and place on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 400 F for 7 minutes. Meanwhile, mix the topping ingredients together. Remove breadsticks from the oven (after 7 minutes) and, using a pastry brush, brush the garlic butter mixture over the breadsticks. Return to oven for 8 more minutes or until lightly browned. If there is any butter mixture left, brush the hot breadsticks with the remainder. Serve hot. These are delicious. Next time I may make a double batch!
