Recipes We Love: First Date Breadsticks

At the end of our first date, I offered to make dinner for Chris and I (really, I just wanted to keep spending time with him).  One of the things I made was Soft Breadsticks, now renamed First Date Breadsticks.  According to Chris, "they are the glue that holds our relationship together."  Obviously...we like them!  They won't win any points for being healthy, but they're yummy.  

  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
  • garlic powder and Parmesan cheese to taste

In a small bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Gradually add milk and stir to form a soft dough. (I sometimes have to add more flour.)

Turn onto a floured surface, knead gently 3-4 times (I typically skip this step). Roll into a 10-in. x 5-in. x 1/2-in. rectangle; cut into 12 breadsticks. Place butter in a 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan. Place breadsticks in the butter and turn to coat.  (I always add garlic powder and Parmesan cheese on top--makes it SO much better!)

Bake at 450 degrees F for 14-18 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.

Hint: Cutting the breadsticks with a pizza cutter is super easy!
