Grissini is an Italian bread, which look thin, Long & crispy to bite. These breadsticks can be served as appetizer & will go perfect by them selves. You can mix & match with your favorite dips when serving.

Prep Time-15mins + 1hr {Making dough + Dough rising} | Cook Time-20mins | Yields - 14sticks | Serves- 2people
Adapted from : The Kitchn
3/4Cup all purpose flour
1/4Cup + 1Tbs warm milk
1Tsp instant yeast
1Tbs sugar
1/4Tsp salt
2Tbs butter {@room temperature}
2Tbs sesame seeds for coating
Some oil to grease bowl
Some all purpose flour for dusting
Making the dough
- Grease a bowl with oil & keep aside.
- In another bowl mix take flour, yeast, sugar, salt, butter & last add warm milk.
- Using a wooden spoon mix all the ingredients to a smooth dough.
- Dust the wooden board with some flour & knead dough for 10mins.
- Now put the dough in the greased bowl & coat the dough with oil.
- Wrap it with a cloth & keep it in a warm place.
- Allow the dough to rise for 1hr or double it's size.
Baking the sticks
- Preheat oven @350 degrees.
- Prep the cookie sheet with a parchment paper.
- Dust the wooden board with flour & place the risen dough.
- Knead it for few seconds & divide the dough in to 20 small balls.
- Take one ball of dough & roll it into straight, thin stick using your hand.
- Now roll it in sesame seeds & lay on the cookie sheet.
- Repeat the same with rest of the dough balls.
- Now lay them equally on the cookie sheet & allow them to rise for 20mins.
- Bake them @350 degrees for 10mins or till they turn light brown.
- Remove from oven & cool them.
- Serve them with your choice of dip & enjoy.
- I used instant yeast so there was no rising ceremony for it.
- If using active yeast follow the packaged instructions.
- I ended up having a little fat bread sticks after the bread rose.. So roll them little more thinner for sleek sticks.
- I haven't added any flavor to dough. Feel free to customize the dough.
- This recipe was perfect for two.
