Quick Bread Sticks*

1 1/3 C water
3 1/2 C flour
1 pkg. yeast (2 1/4 tsp)
1 1/2 tsp salt
1 T sugar

Dissolve sugar in very warm water. Sprinkle in yeast, let yeast foam. Mix flour and salt well. Stir in yeast mixture. Mix well. Turn onto well floured board and knead 5-7 minutes. Shape into eight, 8" long 1/2" thick ropes. Place on greased cookie sheet. Brush with melted butter. Sprinkle with seasonings as desired (salt, sesame, garlic salt, etc.) Place in 425 degree oven, 15-20 minutes.

Cherise gave me this recipe many years ago. It is one of our family favorites--especially when there is not time to make rolls. I use my Kitchen-aid mixer so there is no kneading. I also butter them when they come out of the oven instead of before baking. They are best when they are warm!
