Honey Wheat Breadsticks

Not only are these breadsticks delicious, but they come together very easily. Whole wheat flour and a little honey help give them a wholesome taste and keep them on the healthy side. —Ted Van Schoick, Jersey Shore, Pennsylvania

    I forgot to mention that I usually use 1 c bread flour to 3 c Whole Wheat pastry flour. Sometimes 1c bread flour, 2c W.W. pastry flour, & 1 C regular W. Wheat flour. More nutritious & just as good! This is a very versatile recipe.

    I always make these in my stand mixer with the dough attachment. Put dry ingredients in (including yeast), then add your water which should have oil & honey mixed in. Knead for 5 mins. To make overnight rolls, move dough ball to side of bowl & spray bowl with pan spray. Then spray top of dough, cover & refrigerate overnight. Next day put dough ball on lightly floured surface. Pat into a circle. Divide circle into half, then quarters, then into 16 pie shaped pieces. Flatten & roll up into crescents starting with wider end. Let rise about 30 mins.

    Maybe I did something wrong, but these turned out tough and had no honey flavour....

    I don't have a bread machine so what I did is I heated the water first and mixed in the canola oil and honey so it had a chance to cool. Then I mixed the dry ingredients together. Make sure you let the water cool enough so it doesn't kill the yeast. I had to add a few extra tablespoons of flour, but they turned out great! I even turned a few into rolls and they tasted great too.

    I have made this receipe several times. My son & husband loves them. You can make them garlic sticks by omiting 1 TBSP honey & adding 2 tsp minced garlic to dough. Also can use garlic salt on tops.
