Grandmother Breadsticks

Note: I noticed today, that some of my pictures were a little mixed up on a couple posts. The worst one I found also happens to be one that I reference and link people to often, Grandmother Bread

None of the pictures were where they belonged, and I think I messed something up with computer albums and Picasa. Unfortunately, they are also somehow missing from my camera - I've deleted the pictures on that post until they can be properly replaced. So if you happen to notice anything else askew in the pictures, please drop me a line. You can find my e-mail under the contact me tab at the top of the page. Thanks!

I've been making these breadsticks for about 3 weeks now, and they are sooooo delicious. My youngest devours them!

I use the grandmother bread recipe to make our pizza dough each week. The recipe equals enough for two fluffy doughs and a batch of bread sticks (if you want thinner pizza dough you could easily get three dough rounds and two batches of bread sticks)

After the first rise of the dough, I punch it down and cut of a bit for the breadsticks. I divide the rest in two for my pizza. The bread sticks I just round (slightly flattened) and let go through the second rise (about an hour) I flatten the top again slightly and use a bread knife to cut about 8 pieces. 

Then, I just pour a little melted garlic and butter over the top, sprinkle some Parmesan cheese and cook at 450 for about 7-8 minutes. So simple, so delicious!
