These were very good, but I modified them a bit to my tastes. I made a half batch, for starters, and in place of sugar I used corn syrup because, well, because I did? I left out the herbs and garlic powder and reserved the parmesan for later. I did this by hand, so I kneaded until I got a nice elastic dough, then let it rest 10 minutes, then portioned and shaped (I made 8 out of the dough). I then let it rise for 30 minutes in the oven, covered, with a pot of steaming water. They fluffed up nicely. While they were rising, I melted two tablespoons butter with one tablespoon olive oil and three cloves of garlic, finely minced. I let the garlic sweat while baking the breadsticks (about 10 minutes), then I pulled them out and basted them with the butter, oil, and garlic mixture, topped them with an Italian herb blend, and the cheese, then baked for another 10 minutes. They came out great and everyone loved them.
