Just wanted to leave this comment for future raters: do not use yeast that isn't fast rising! It's all that I had in the house, and I'm not much of a baker so I figured it would be fine. They were still good, but they didn't rise, and they weren't very "puffy" like the pictures show. They were easy though, so I'll get myself some fast-rising yeast, and then stop back by and rate these for real.

These breadsticks were surprisingly easy to make, even for a novice baker like me! I loved how soft and fluffy they were. I put some Italian seasoning in the dough mix, then more on top, used garlic salt on top, and then sprinkled on some fresh grated mozzarella and provolone cheese on half of them (next time I'll put it on all of the breadsticks because it was very good.) Also, instead of just twisting the breadsticks after folding them, I instead braided each half around the other and then pinched the ends, since the techinque suggested wasn't working for me (they kept coming unraveled.) Thanks for an easy and fun recipe that can be tinkered with to suit our preferences!

These were easy, even for a baking-impaired person like me! My family said this is a keeper. I was out of parmesan cheese, so I used Italian seasoning, but next time I'd like to try them with cheese.

These were so easy, and worked perfectly - they rose! (Don't laugh, I have real trouble with this!) I thought the garlic butter was just garlicky enough and just salty enough. I don't think I would add any extras next time. The two kids and I devoured the whole recipe ourselves.

I agree, these are wonderful and easy to make. I think the original recipe comes from Taste of Home and calls for some paprika mixed in with the butter and garlic powder, which I don't like to miss out. It gives the bread a bit of colour. I also like to sprinkle some sesame seeds on top. I always use the lesser amount of flour and just a touch more water, but this may vary according to the brand of flour used.

These are terrific! I often make bread to go with our dinners and this recipe was easy to follow and tasted great! My kids give it the thumbs up too!
