Super Easy Bread Sticks

Whenever my family eats pasta, we like to have these bread sticks to dip in the sauce and to use as an extra utensil. They are popular with my family on Italian night, I imagine they will be with yours.

Super Easy Bread Sticks
1 1/2 cups water (105°-115°)
1 Tbsp sugar
1 Tbsp yeast
1/2 tsp salt
 3-4 1/2 cups flour
In a mixer, combine water, sugar and yeast. Let it stand for 10 minutes or until yeast is bubbly. Add salt and stir. Add 1 1/2 cups of flour and mix well. Gradually add more flour (between 3-4 cups) until dough starts to pull away and barely sticks to your finger. Spray a metal bowl and place the dough inside. Cover with a clean dish cloth and let rise for 45 minutes or until doubled. Remove from bowl to a lightly floured surface. Roll into a rectangle- cut into strips. Roll into a snake and twist into bread sticks. Place on sprayed cookie sheets. Cover and let rise for 30 minutes. Preheat oven to 425°. Bake  15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Brush with butter and sprinkle with garlic salt if you desire- we usually do!
