Quick Rosemary Breadsticks

Yield 2 dozen breadsticks


  • 5 to 5 1/2 cups cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 envelopes Fleischmann's® Active Dry Yeast
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 teaspoons rosemary leaves, lightly crushed
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 cups very warm water (120°F to 130°F)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 egg whites, divided
  • Sesame or poppy seeds (optional)

How to Make It

  1. In large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, undissolved yeast, sugar, rosemary and salt. Add water and olive oil to dry ingredients; beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Add 2 egg whites and 1/2 cup flour; beat 2 minutes at high speed. Stir in enough remaining flour to make soft dough. Knead on floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 6 to 8 minutes. Divide dough into 24 pieces; roll to 24-inch ropes. Fold ropes in half and twist several times; pinch ends to seal. Place on 2 greased baking sheets. Cover; let rise in warm place for 15 minutes.

    Lightly beat remaining egg white. Brush on rolls. If desired, sprinkle with sesame seed. Preheat oven to 450°F. Bake 12 minutes or until done, switching positions of sheets in oven halfway through baking. Remove from sheets; cool on wire racks.
