How to Make Easy Breadsticks


  1. Place flour in a large bowl; add the seasonings. Add the Crisco to the flour and work it with your fingers into small pieces. Slowly add the water while working the dough.
  2. You may need a touch more or less water depending on the consistency of the dough. You want the dough to be workable, not too sticky. Form the dough into a ball.

    Place the olive oil in the palm of your hand and rub it on the outside of the dough, then pat the dough with flour.
  3. Dust a clean surface with flour to roll out the dough.
  4. Roll the dough out to about ¼ inch in thickness. Cut dough into approximately two-inch strips and roll these strips into sticks.
  5. Place on parchment paper and bake.
  6. Preheat Oven 375 degrees: Bake the breadsticks about 12-15 minutes or until lightly golden.
