Enjoy these fabulous Grissini breadsticks recipe that we use at home. These Italian breadsticks are long, thin and crispy. We use them as homemade snacks that taste great and better than anything in the store.
Disolve the yeast in the lukewarm water with the sugar and wait till it foams about 10 minutes
Add in the salt and flour
Knead until it forms a smooth ball of dough and everything is well mixed. This can take about 8 minutes or even less sometimes.
Divide the dough into small pieces about 1-2" long and 1/2" wide. Use your hands or a dough divider.
Keep the dough from drying out by keeping a damp cloth or paper towels over them as you divide them up.
Roll each piece out on the non-floured counter with your hands until they are the length you want. They should be thin, not thick. The thicker they are the longer they will need to bake.
Let rise for about 8 minutes.
Place on a slightly greased (with oil) pan and bake for 10-15 minutes in the oven at 400F.
Turn them over and bake for 5 minutes more to make them evenly baked. They should not burn or become dark brown.
Remove from oven, let cool and enjoy!
