Salted Breadsticks (or cheese or seeded)


These are not your typical Italian-style bread sticks.

I got the recipe from a Hungarian friend of mine and they are in texture more

like a Kifli cookie.  But they are savory and so flaky and good.

Try them _ I KNOW you will like them.


4 1/2 cups plain AP flour

3 tsp. salt

2 sticks (1/2 lb.) butter- room temperature

1 TBS yeast

1/3 cup warm water

16 oz sour cream (1 lb)

2 egg yolks (you will use the whites when you roll out dough.)

Proof yeast in water.  Mix salt and flour in large bowl.  Add all other ingredients and mix

together well.  Knead lightly and form into ball.


Turn bowl over onto top of counter and allow to raise 1/2 hour.

Roll out and brush loosely whipped egg whites on top.

Fold up- keeping whites inside dough- and allow to raise another 1/2 hr.

These are light and flaky and buttery!  Dip into a marinara sauce or spread with

a pate- these are great- I like them plain instead of a roll with salad.

  1. These are really easy to make, Joanna!
    Hardly any kneading, they raise quickly, and you don’t need any special tools.
    Try them- they freeze like a dream, so you can pull them out for your eating pleasure a few at a time!

  2. Oh yeah! I’m going to try these! No question about that! Freezing would be a good idea here, otherwise I would be the one to get my mitts on them! Thanks for the recipe!
