Dough:
1 1/2 cups warm water
2 Tbs sugar
1 Tbs yeast
1 Tbs salt (yes, the recipe calls for 1 Tablespoon, which I use every time and they turn out great.)
2 Tbs butter, softened
4-5 Cups flour

Topping: 
3 Tbs butter melted
sea salt
1 tsp garlic powder

 

1. For the dough, pour the water into a stand mixer with the sugar and yeast, let that sit and froth for about 10 minutes.

2. Add salt, butter, and 2 cups of flour. Mix the dough on low.

3. Add the rest of the flour a half cup at a time, until dough scrapes the sides of the bowl clean. Mix the dough about 5 minutes on medium speed, until its soft and easy to work with.

4. Let the dough rest in the bowl until doubled in size, about 1 hour and then roll it out.

5. Roll the dough out into a long log, spray a knife with cooking spray and cut the dough into 12-14 pieces. Roll those pieces into about 6 inch long snakes. Spray 2 large cookie sheets with cooking spray, ( I usually only use one) and lay the bread-sticks out leaving about 2 inches between each one.

6. Place them in the oven with the temperature turned to 170 degrees. Let them rise for about 15 minutes, or until doubled in size.( I have also let them sit at room temp until they are doubled in size and then bake them in the oven)

7. Once risen, brush them with the 1 1/2 T of melted butter and sprinkle them with salt.

8. Now preheat the oven to 400 degrees and bake them for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. While they are baking combine the rest of the melted butter with 1 tsp garlic powder.

9. When the bread-sticks are golden brown, remove them from the oven and brush them with the butter/garlic mixture.
