Got this recipe from Better Homes and Gardens. We love all kinds of different breads. Haven't gotten to try it yet but sure sounds delicious.

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.
