    I haven't made these yet, as I just happened across the recipe. A great Italian Bakery near us makes a version of these, but they're crispy (like a hard biscuit) and have fennel and anise in them, in addition to the black pepper. They're oddly addictive!

    These were a nice change from biscuits or rolls. The pepper gave them a little spice (I used 1/2 tsp), but I feel like they were missing a little something. I did rub butter over the tops while they were warm and that added some flavor. This is a good, easy recipe for breadsticks and I'd like to try them again with some variations. Thanks!
