These are fabulous. The flavor is great. Easy to make. The only issue I have is that they are much skinnier than the picture. I was expecting these big fluffy breadsticks and they are only a little bigger than my finger. I followed the instructions exactly and I make yeast bread at least once per week, so I'm not new to this. However, perhaps I made a mistake. Anyway great recipe.

These breadsticks are outstanding!! I made them to take to the coast with us for Christmas, hoping they will freeze nicely, don't see why they won't! In any case we had to have a taste, DH loves them as do I and I think they will be a welcome addition to our Christmas dinner. Thanks for posting I will make them again!
