World's Best Breadsticks

This recipe is adapted from a recipe I got from my friend Kim. Her mom used to make them for her family all the time growing up, and now that I have tried them I can definitely see why. My husband says that these are the best breadsticks ever. In fact, they're so good that I made them especially for him for father's day today. Everyone else that had them loved them too. And they're simple to whip up and can be ready in less than an hour.
World's Best Breadsticks

1 1/2 cups warm water
1 Tb. SAF instant yeast
2 Tb. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
3 1/4 cups flour
1 cube butter
garlic salt
Parmesan cheese

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In bowl of stand mixer fitted with dough hook, combine yeast and water until yeast is dissolved and frothy. Add sugar, salt, and flour. Mix until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Let rise for 10 minutes.
2. Melt butter and pour into a large (half-sheet) baking pan.
3. Spray clean counter top, rolling pin, and hands with cooking spray (the dough is very sticky so don't skip this step!). Roll dough out into a large rectangle. Cut dough with pizza cutter (sprayed with cooking spray) into twelve long pieces. Roll each dough piece in butter, and twist to form a breadstick, then place in pan. Sprinkle with garlic salt and Parmesan to taste.
4. Let raise 15 minutes. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 - 18 minutes. These are best warm out of the oven. Enjoy!
