I'll give this recipe 3 stars, but I did alter it some but mostly because of the texture of the finished product. It was very light and fluffy bread and while it was very tasty bread, breadsticks should have a more dense texture. I scaled the recipe down to fit into my bread machine so I used 3 1/2 cups of flour. The dough has a nice texture when it comes out of the bread machine. When I scaled down the recipe I did round the numbers a bit to accomidate. But to the dough, I also added 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons of minced garlic and 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese to the dough. Then for the butter topping I increased the garlic to 1+ teaspoon of garlic powder. I didn't measure, but just palmed the garlic powder. I think next time I would use 4 tablespoons of butter for the topping because 3 was barely enough to cover the breadsticks a second time after baking. After spreading the garlic butter on top I sprinkled a bit more Parmesan cheese on top. I palmed the Parmesan and sprinkled it on by hand so it's just a light touch of it added. Then baked them. After baking I used the remaining garlic butter on top and sprinkled the tops with a bit of kosher salt while wet so it sticks well. We like a lot of garlic in our house so the garlic amount was just perfect for my family. I think you want them to raise a bit but not as much as you would a bread and an hour was to long. I also used a heating pad for about 15-20 min. I made 15 breadsticks with my scaled down recipe.
