Charles Smith relies of a bread machine to mix the dough for these buttery golden breadsticks that are mildly seasoned with garlic and basil. "I like to use this dough when making pizza, too," says the Baltic, Connecticut reader. "It makes two 12-inch crusts."

MY REVIEW

"I wasn't sure if I'd like these so I did half a batch. I really liked them except for 1 thing. They seemed too sweet for me. I only used 1 tb of sugar since the original called for 2 tb. So, I know I didn't mess up. So, next time I will be omitting the sugar altogether. I also put my oven on warm and let them rise in there for 15 minutes. I think I will try the 40 minutes next time. They rose fine in the oven but they seemed a little more dense than if I did it outside of the oven for the 40 minutes. Otherwise I really loved these. Also didn't have basil so that got omitted too. Delicious still! So, next time I'll omit the sugar and let them rise for 40 minutes covered."

"These were delicious. I made them to go with Slow-Cooker Italian Meatball Soup from another website. My husband wasn't too happy about having soup on an early September day in Florida, but he loved these bread sticks and said they saved the dinner for him. Said they were better than the bread sticks from Caesar's Pizza. I will make these again."
