Quick and Easy Breadsticks

Let me preface this by saying.. My kids LOVE these and so do their friends at school.
I have been told when they take them for lunch, kids bribe for one.

1 1/2 c. lukewarm water
2 T. sugar
1 T. rapid yeast
combine above ingredients and let sit for 10 min.
Then Add:
3 cups flour
1 1/2 t. salt

Mix ingredients until dough forms..
Then knead for 3 min.
Let covered dough rise in warm area in your home for 20 min.
punch down and roll into a 1/2 inch rectangle
Cut strips and place on greased baking sheet.
(I use a pizza cutter for quick cutting)
You could also twist if you wish.
brush melted butter on the bread sticks
 BEFORE the second rise.
Sprinkle on garlic salt (a lot can go a long way) and dried parsley flakes.

Let rise another 20 min.
Cook at 400 degrees for 20 min or until golden brown.

You can also vary these bread sticks..
There are so many different kinds besides garlic
 you can make by sprinkling:
Parmesan cheese
sugar and cinnamon
Italian Seasoning
Dried Rosemary and Thyme
Pizza Salt
Use your imagination!!!!
