3 ¼ cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon sugar (divided)
1 envelope active yeast (¼ oz = 2 ¼ teaspoons)
1 ¼ cup warm water (divided)
1 tablespoon olive oil
Extra flour for kneading
1. Mix the yeast with ¼ cup warm water (100 ˚ F-110 ˚ F) and 1 teaspoon sugar. Mix and let stand for 10 minutes until frothy surface and double in size.
2. Mix flour, salt and remaining sugar in a large bowl. Make a well in the center and pour the yeast, remaining water and oil. Mixing with a spatula until a dough forms.
3. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead for 10 minutes adding small amount of flour as needed, until the dough is smooth and not sticky to the touch.
4. Place in an oiled bowl, turning once to coat both sides with oil. Cover with a plastic wrap. Let stand for 1 hour or until doubled in size.
5. Softly punch down the center to deflate the dough. Cut into 24 uniform size pieces. Shape by rolling into sticks a little thinner than what you want since it will continue to rise as it rests and bakes.
6. Place the breadsticks on a lightly greased tray. Cover with plastic or container for 15 minutes. Meanwhile pre-heat the oven at 425˚F (220 ˚C). Bake for 20-30 minutes or until the grissinis are golden brown.
Yied: 20-24 breadsticks.
Notes: You can vary the flavor by using herbs such as rosemary, thyme or basil. Add a teaspoon of these herbs while kneading the dough in step three. You can also sprinkle a garlic powder and grated Parmesan cheese over the formed bread sticks in step five.
