Raisin Breadsticks. This recipes makes soft, buttery, with raisins and full of flavor breadsticks.
1 cup warm water
1 tablespoon active dry yeast
2 tablespoons softened butter
3 and 1/4 cups white flour
1 cup raisins
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons melted butter
Garlic salt to taste
Combine all ingredients (except for topping ingredients) in the bowl of a stand mixer and mix using the dough hook until combined on low. Continue mixing about 5 minutes, adding just a little more flour if needed. Dough will be soft and slightly sticky; it won’t completely pull away from side of bowl.
Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead two or three times, forming a ball. Cover with a kitchen towel and let rise 1 to 1.5 hours, until nearly double in size.
On floured surface, roll dough into a 12×16 inch rectangle. Use pizza cutter to slice into 16 pieces. Pinch the long sides of each piece together to form a breadstick shape.
Place sticks pinched side down on a greased cookie sheet, cover with towel, and let rise about 30 minutes.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15-18 minutes until golden brown. Brush with melted butter.
