Updated Jul 9, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 to 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup cornmeal
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 package fast-acting dry yeast
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
  • 2 tablespoons cornmeal

Steps

  • 1
    In large bowl, mix 1 cup of the flour, 1 cup cornmeal, the sugar, salt and yeast. In 1-quart saucepan, heat water and 1/4 cup butter until hot (120°F to 130°F). Add hot liquid to flour mixture; beat with electric mixer on low speed until moistened, scraping bowl frequently. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl frequently. With spoon, stir in 1/2 to 1 cup of the flour until dough pulls away from side of bowl.

    On floured work surface, knead in remaining 1/4 cup flour until dough is smooth and elastic, about 2 minutes. Grease large bowl with shortening or cooking spray. Place dough in bowl; cover loosely with plastic wrap and cloth towel. Let rise in warm place (80°F to 85°F) about 10 minutes or until light and doubled in size.

    Grease 2 large cookie sheets with shortening or cooking spray; sprinkle with cornmeal. Gently push fist into dough to deflate; divide dough into 24 pieces. Roll each piece into 10-inch rope; place on cookie sheets. Cover; let rise in warm place about 10 minutes or until light and doubled in size.

    Heat oven to 375°F. Uncover dough. Carefully brush sticks with 2 tablespoons melted butter; sprinkle with 2 tablespoons cornmeal. Bake 12 to 16 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheets. Serve warm or cool.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

    Fast-acting yeast is a time-saver because it reduces the rising time by about half. Serve these easy breadsticks with any soup, stew or salad.
