I love these! The first night I only made 9...the second night I made 27 and froze them. They freeze and reheat well. Just pop them in the oven at 350 for about 10 minutes. I made a few changes to these, mostly for personal preference. I reduced the sugar by half, and replaced it with raw honey (so 2 tbsp. raw honey instead of 4 tbsp. sugar). I omitted the powdered dry milk as I didn't have any. I also used half whole wheat flour. These are crunchy on the outside and chewy and soft on the inside. I brushed them with melted butter when they came out of the oven and sprinkled with garlic salt -- they taste a lot like Olive Garden's this way. :) Will make them a lot, keep them in the house!
BTW, without a bread machine -- proof the yeast in water with sugar or honey, mix in butter and salt, then flour. I kneaded for about 10 min. until the dough was the proper consistency. I let it rise in a warm oven for about an hour. Then I rolled the sticks out, and let them rise another 30 - 45 min. Then, I baked them for about 15 min. This is a great BASIC recipe. If you want them to taste any particular way -- cinnamon, garlic, etc. -- you must add your own topping or add some spices to the dough.
