What a treat these breadsticks are! I was pleased by the ease of this recipe and the great return that came with the finished results. These breadsticks would be a great accompaniment to any soup or salad.


Combine 1-1/2 cups flour, yeast, sugar, basil, oregano and salt in a large bowl.
Add water and oil; beat at medium speed of an electric mixer 3 to 4 minutes or until smooth.
Stir in 1 cup parmesan cheese, garlic and enough flour to make a stiff dough. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and knead until smooth and elastic (about 1 minute).
Divide dough into fourths; shape each into a ball.
Cut each ball into 10 pieces. Shape each piece into an 8-inch rope. (Cover remaining dough while working to prevent drying.)
Dip rope in butter and roll in parmesan cheese. Place 2 inches apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85 degrees), free from drafts, 50 minutes. (Dough will not double in bulk.)
Bake at 400 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes.

my dough didn't rise! help!

I'm sorry it didn't work for you Tejal. The only things I can think of is the yeast you used may have been old, or the water you used may not have been warm enough. The water should be at least room temperature or hot tap water. Or maybe it was over kneeded. If you try it again let me know how it works out. These are delicious so I hope you get to try them.
