Tantalizing Tuesday

Breadsticks or Pizza Dough

3 c. warm (105-115 degrees) water
2 Tbsp. sugar
2 Tbsp. yeast
1 1/2  tsp. salt
6-9 c. flour

In a large bowl combine water, sugar, and yeast.  Let stand for 10 min or until yeast is bubbly. Add salt and stir. Add 1 1/2 c. flour and mix well. Gradually add more flour (usually between 6-8 cups, depending on your elevation and your humidity) until dough starts to pull away from the sides of the bowl and it barely sticks to your finger.

Spray a glass or metal bowl with cooking spray and place dough in the bowl.
Cover and allow to rise for 45 minutes or until doubled in bulk.

Remove from bowl and place on a lightly-floured surface. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray. Roll into a rectangle and cut into24 strips with a pizza cutter.  I then add butter, garlic salt, and parmesean cheese.
Twist each piece of dough into a snake and then drape over your forefinger and twist the dough. Place on baking sheet and repeat with remaining pieces of dough. Try to space them evenly, but it's okay if they're close; pulling apart hot bread is one of life's greatest pleasures!

Cover pan and allow dough to rise for another 30 minutes

When there's about 15 minutes to go, preheat your oven to 425. When done rising, bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Rub some butter on top of the breadsticks. YUM YUM!
