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.

    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.

    Dust a clean surface with flour to roll out the dough.

    Roll the dough out to about ¼ inch in thickness. Cut dough into approximately two inch strips and roll these strips into sticks.

    Place on parchment paper and bake.

    Preheat Oven 375 degrees:

    Bake the breadsticks about 12-15 minutes or until lightly golden.
