"There is nothing wrong with this recipe except that the title is a bit deceptive. These bread sticks are like shortbread sticks; not what one would think of normally when one says bread sticks. These might be nice served with a fruit dish, but this was not what I was looking for in my idea of a bread stick."

"I was not real impressed with this recipe. I am going to try it one more time, only after buttering them I'm going to sprinkle with garlic powder to give them some taste. Otherwise I will not make them again."
