Garlicky Breadsticks

I got the new Garlic Galore Blend in the mail a couple days ago and had to try it. I had a little extra dough from overestimating some pizza, so I rolled it out and cut it into strips and laid the strips on a stone (a cookie sheet would do just fine). Then, lift one end, twist, and stick it back to the pan. Like so. . .

Cover and let raise for 30 minutes or so, until they look a little puffy. This picture is actually taken after they've raised a bit (I think).

Bake in a preheated 425 degree oven for about 10 minutes.

Meanwhile, get out your Garlic Galore and mix a teaspoon or so into 2-3 T. melted butter. Let soften while breadsticks are baking. Remove pan from oven and brush butter mixture onto partially baked breadsticks and sprinkle with finely grated Parmesan cheese. Pop back into the oven for 5-8 minutes until your house smells fantastic and the breadsticks are lightly golden brown.

I didn't want to over bake and make them crunchy--I wanted a soft interior. This is really more of a method than an exact recipe because it depends on how many you want to make and what type of dough you are using. You could easily use the Quick and Easy Pizza Dough Mix or the Whole Wheat Pizza Dough Mix for these. Serve with soups, pastas or alongside a salad--Yum!

looks delish. I think it's funny that you called that a "little extra dough" :)
