The dough rose beautifully resulting in light and fluffy breadsticks. I used instant yeast, so no proofing was needed. I simply added the first 6 ingredients and 2 cups of flour to my mixing bowl. After mixing, I began adding 1/2 cup of flour at a time until the dough clung to my dough hook and cleaned the sides of the bowl. It has taken 5-6 cups of flour each time I have made these. To add a little more flavor and flare, I brushed the breadsticks after the second rise, just prior to baking with the butter mixture plus 1/4 teaspoon extra garlic powder. I then sprinkled them with coarse sea salt. After baking, I brushed the warm breadsticks with a similar mixture of butter, Parmesan cheese, and garlic powder with dry basil and oregano added. They were herby and wonderful served with lasagna, spaghetti, or any other Italian dish.
