Buttered Breadsticks Recipe

After sampling these homemade breadsticks, you'll never rely on store-bought varieties again. They always bake up buttery and golden brown.—Jane Payne, Twin Falls, Idaho
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour, divided
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted


  • 1. In a medium bowl, combine 1-1/3 cups flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Gradually add milk; stir in the remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a lightly floured board; knead gently for 1-2 minutes. Roll into a 1/4-in.-thick rectangle. Cut in half widthwise, then cut each lengthwise into six strips. Brush one side with butter. Place, butter side down on a greased baking sheet; butter other side and fold each strip nearly in half. Bake at 450° for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 1 dozen.

"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."
