- 1 cup milk
- 1/3 cup butter, melted
- Sesame seeds, garlic, onion or celery salt

- Cut dough in half lengthwise with sharp knife, then into 16 strips. Place butter in a 13-in. x 9-in. baking pan. Dip both sides of strips in melted butter. Place two rows in pan. Sprinkle with topping of your choice. Bake at 450° for 12-15 minutes. Serve immediately. Yield: 32 breadsticks.
Reviews for Butter Dips
"Super buttery, to the point where they are crunchy rather than moist. It was a little too rich for my taste"
"i have made these for many years. Found the recipe in a 1950's Betty Crocker Recipe book. This was a favorite of my students in Foods classes for 30 years. We also sprinkled cinnamon and sugar over the dips when we made them without the cheese. Garlic was also a great addition to the dough. Oregano was a great addition to the plain dough too."
"If these were round, I would call them cheddar biscuits. I misunderstood the directions, so mine were twice the size as the picture since I cut 16 total strips. We ate them with Round Steak Chili, and the leftovers were great reheated for breakfast."
"This was quite good."
"My girls and I have made this recipe without the cheddar cheese for years. Had never thought to add cheese but will try that next time. These are so DELISH with spaghetti and a nice salad and you might want to double as they don't last long and if they do, are good to just munch on the next day. Thanks for the recipe!!"
