Ingredients

1 c
milk
2 Tbsp
water
1 Tbsp
oil
3/4 tsp
salt
2 Tbsp
brown sugar
3 c
bread flour
1 tsp
cinnamon - mix the cinnamon with the flour
1 Tbsp
active dry yeast or 1 packet
1/2 c
raisins

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 475 degrees.

Mix the cinnamon into the bread flour.
2
Add milk, water, oil, salt and brown sugar into the bread machine. Then add the flour-cinnamon mixture. Lastly add the yeast. (Or add according to your bread machine directions.)
3
Set on dough setting and start machine.
4
When the machine has done it's magic, take dough out and punch down. Let rest 10 minutes.
5
Roll out into a 12" x 8" rectangle. Sprinkle raisins on one half of the dough and gently press in. Fold in half and gently roll and stretch dough back out into a 12" x 8" rectangle. Note: Some bread machines will beep when it is time to add things like raisin to the dough.
6
Cut into 10 8-strips. Then pull or gently roll - using your hands, into 12-14" strips.

Note: If you want a crisper bread stick, cut into 12 pieces and stretch into 14-16" strips.
7
Place on 2 baking sheets that have been lined with parchment paper.
8
Bake at 475 degrees for 4 minutes, remove from oven. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees.
9
Allow oven to cool to 350 degrees- this takes several minutes depending on your oven. Just before returning bread sticks to oven, brush them lightly with water. (For a sweeter bread stick, sprinkle with raw sugar granules.) Return to 350 degrees oven and bake 20-25 minutes. Cool on rack. Drizzle with a glaze made from powdered sugar and a little water.
10
Note: For an even crispier bread stick, bake in the top half of the oven.
