Garlic Breadsticks (adapted from Simply Scratch)
1 tbsp honey
3/4 cup warm water (about 115 F)
1 rounded tsp yeast
about 2 cups all-purpose flour (maybe a little more)
1/2 tbsp thick granule garlic salt (or 2 tsp kosher salt and 1 tsp garlic powder)
1 tbsp melted unsalted butter
2 tbsp melted unsalted butter
2 tsp thick granule garlic salt (or 1 tsp kosher salt and 1 tsp garlic powder)
Combine the honey, warm water and yeast in the bowl of your stand mixer fitted with the dough hook (or alternatively in a large bowl) and allow to sit for 5 minutes and bubble up. Add the flour, garlic salt and melted butter to the mixer. Mix on low until a ball forms and pulls away from the sides of the bowl, about 5-6 minutes (alternatively you can knead by hand). Separate the dough into 8 equal pieces and form into breadstick shapes by rolling between your hands. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet, cover with a damp towel and allow to rise for about 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 400 F.
Mix the remaining 2 tbsp melted butter with the garlic salt and stir to combine. Brush over the top of the breadsticks. Bake for about 6 minutes. Remove from oven and brush with more garlic butter. Bake for an additional 6-8 minutes. Brush with more garlic butter when you remove from the oven.
Serve warm. Makes 8 breadsticks (easily adaptable to make 16 if you double the recipe).
*I'm not claiming that these are copy-cat breadsticks only that they taste similar in my opinion.
