Soft Sesame Breadsticks Recipe

I've been making these tasty breadsticks that go with almost any meal for years. Since they use ingredients like flour, sugar, baking powder and milk, it's convenient and inexpensive to mix up a batch. —Nancy Johnson, Connersville, Indiana
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds


  • 1. Preheat oven to 450°. In a small bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Gradually add milk and stir to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface, knead gently 3-4 times. Roll into a 10x5x1/2-in. rectangle; cut into 12 breadsticks.
  • 2. Place butter in a 13x9-in. baking pan. Place breadsticks in butter and turn to coat. Sprinkle with sesame seeds. Bake 14-18 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. Yield: 1 dozen.

"My oven was giving me problems so I decided to fry them instead and they turned out great! They're SO good. I didn't put the sesame on them though. Instead I did garlic salt and parmesean cheese."

"Perfect solution for breadsticks during a snow day when I didn't have yeast! Everyone enjoyed them -used garlic rather than sesame seeds to accompany lasagna!"

"These were terrific! I ommitted the sesame seeds and instead used a blend of 1/4c melted butter, 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese and 1/4 tsp garlic salt, I put 2/3 of the mixture in the bottom of the 9x13 pan and baked the breadsticks, then brushed the tops of baked sticks with remaining 1/3 of mixture. Absolutely delicious, and my husband who swears he doesn't like non-yeast bread items loved it!"

"Very soft dough. Need quite a bit of flour to knead dough, although I think that's what makes them so tender. I added 1/4 tsp. each basil, oregano, & thyme, 1 tsp. parsley, & 1/8 tsp. garlic powder. We like garlic so I"ll add 1/4 tsp. next time."
