    Easy and fast. Came out yummy. I drizzled a little olive oil, Kosher salt, and minced garlic on top. Made 10 and saved the rest of the dough in the fridge or a few hours, for a pizza for my husband when he got home. Worked great for that, too!

    Taste was great. My son said it was the best bread I ever made. Didn't turn out quite right though. I should have used two pans to let the bread rise as the sticks all kind of ran together.. Next time I will make the sticks longer and skinnier. Also, when I "lightly" brushed the first butter on them, they all went flat! Next time I will try it without doing the first time of butter. I sprinkled garlic salt and powder on them, too.

    This recipe worked out wonderfully just following the directions! I did let the dough raise once before forming into breadsticks, as I had started them earlier than necessary. Just like the originals, my family kept eating more, even after they were 'full'. Thanks!

    This was a hit tonight! I went ahead and heated the water to around 115 degrees and added the yeast to it because I wasn't sure if the bread would rise without heating the water. These are terrific. Thank you for posting this Celestial Star!
