  • Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 3 breadsticks)

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour (about 1 1/2 ounces)
  • 1/4 cup whole wheat flour (about 1 1/4 ounces)
  • 1/4 cup grated fresh pecorino Romano cheese
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 5 tablespoons water
  • 1 teaspoon extravirgin olive oil
  • Cooking spray

Preparation

Preheat oven to 450°.

Lightly spoon flours into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flours, cheese, baking powder, and pepper in a medium bowl. Add 5 tablespoons water and oil; stir until dough forms. Turn dough out onto a floured surface; knead lightly 4 or 5 times. Divide dough into 18 equal portions, shaping each portion into an 8-inch rope. Place ropes on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray.

Bake at 450° for 10 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown. Remove from oven; cool on a wire rack.
