Breadsticks

breadsticks-0910-2

Yummy breadsticks - crunchy rather than soft and chewy - are perfect with a drink before dinner, with tea, with a salad, a soup... anything you can think of. And you can use any sort of topping for these - sunflower seeds, sesame seeds, poppy seeds, crushed hazelnuts, dried herbs, chili, sea salt... any!

I bake these so they're still a little soft and not entirely crunchy. If you want them crisper, bake them for a few minutes longer.

Breadsticks

Mix all the dough ingredients except for the salt. Knead - preferrably using something like a Kitchen-Aid - for ten minutes (If kneading by hand, count on twice the time). Add the salt and knead for five more minutes. Leave the dough to rise for 30 minutes.

Divide the dough in half. Roll each into lenghts and divide each into fifteen equal pieces. Roll each piece into a very thin rope. Brush with water and sprinkle with your chosen topping. Transfer to a baking sheet, and let them rise for 45 minutes.

Bake at 200°C for 10-12 minutes - or longer, for more crunch.
