How to Make Cinnamon Sugar Breadsticks:

With this recipe you can make 16 – 6 inch breadsticks. You will notice that the dough is quite airy, and it’s supposed to be, these breadsticks are fluffy and soft! Here are some quick tips: (refer to the recipe card below for the full recipe and instructions)

  • On a floured piece of parchment paper roll the dough out and shape it into a 10 x 12 inch rectangle.
  • Brush with the melted butter.
  • Sprinkle on the cinnamon/sugar mixture, making sure it’s spread out in an even layer.
  • Cut the rectangle horizontally through the middle.
  • Then cut the dough vertically into 1 inch strips. You should end up with 14 strips of dough.
  • Twist the dough about 5 times then place the strips onto 2 greased baking pans. They don’t have to be perfect.
  • Cover and let rise for about 15 minutes, until the breadsticks puff up in size.
  • Bake.

Ingredients

Units Scale

Breadstick Dough:

  • 1 cup warm water
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 tsp bread machine yeast

Cinnamon Sugar Topping:

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted

Instructions

Making the dough:

  1. Measure all of the above dough ingredients, in the order that they are listed, into the bread machine.
  2. Choose the ‘dough cycle’.

Prepping the breadsticks:

  1. In a small bowl mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon.
  2. Once the bread dough cycle is complete, remove the dough from the bread machine pan, and place it on a lightly floured surface (I lay it out on a lightly floured piece of parchment paper).
  3. Roll the dough into a 10 x 12 inch rectangle.
  4. Brush the dough with the melted butter, making sure to get it right to the edge.
  5. Sprinkle the cinnamon/sugar mixture over the melted butter, making sure to cover the entire surface of the dough in an even layer.
  6. Cut the dough in half lengthwise (right down the middle horizontally). I use a pizza cutter to do this.
  7. Then cut the dough vertically into 1 inch strips. You should end up with 16 strips of dough.
  8. Lightly grease 2 baking sheets with vegetable oil.
  9. Take each strip of dough and twist it about 5 times, then pinch the ends. Place on the prepared baking sheet (8 sticks to a baking sheet), about an inch or more apart. The dough may slightly untwist but you can leave it that way or re-twist it.
  10. Take any excess butter/sugar and re-sprinkle it on the tops of the breadsticks.
  11. Cover with a tea towel and let rise for 15 minutes.
  12. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  13. You can place both baking sheets in your oven, just stagger them slightly for better air flow.
  14. Bake for 10 – 12 minutes. When they are done, the breadsticks should have puffed up slightly, and should be golden brown. When you tap the tops, they will sound hollow.
  15. Serve immediately.
