Garlic Breadsticks

My Friend Wendee shared this recipe with me.  I think they taste like Olive Garden's Breadsticks.  Yummy!

Garlic Breadsticks
Wendee Bacon

1 ½ c. very warm water
1 package active dry yeast (2 ¼ tsp.)
4 ¼ c. all purpose flour
2 TBS unsalted butter, melted
2 TBS sugar
1 TBS salt

Garlic Butter Topping:
½ stick unsalted butter
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp table salt

In a large bowl, dissolve sugar and yeast in warm water and allow to sit for 10 minutes, covered.  Mixture should be frothy.  In the bowl of your stand mixer or medium sized bowl, combine flour and salt.  Add yeast mixture and melted butter to flour mixture.  Mix with dough hook attachment on stand mixer or stir with a wooden spoon until fully combined.  Knead dough for a few minutes just until dough is smooth and elastic.  Spray baking sheet with nonstick spray.  Pull off small pieces of dough and roll out into strips.  Cover and dough with plastic wrap sprayed with nonstick spray (so dough doesn’t stick to it from the inside) or cover with a clean kitchen towel.  Put in a warm place to rise.  Once they have doubled in size, preheat oven up to 400 degrees. 

While they are baking, make butter topping.  Microwave butter until melted and add garlic powder and salt, stir until combined.  After 6 or 7 minutes, brush the bread sticks with half the butter mixture.  Then continue to bake for another 6-7 minutes.  Immediately upon removal from the oven, brush the other half of the butter on the sticks.
