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!
