Oh So Awesome Breadsticks

Today's delightful delectable is one of Aunt D's favorites.  I know a few other people who are partial to them as well.  Of course, they are best straight out of the oven but they reheat well, too. 

1 cup water
3 tbsp sunflower oil
3 cups bread flour
3 1/2 tbsp sugar
1 tsp salt
2 tsp yeast

Add the ingredients to your bread machine in the order listed (unless your bread machine calls for dry ingredients to go in first).  Choose the dough setting on your machine then sit back and relax while it does most of the work.

When your dough is ready, separate it into sections one handful at a time.  Roll each lump of dough between your hands until you have a piece of dough about 12 inches in length and then place on a non-stick baking sheet.  Leave a little space between the unbaked breadsticks to allow for rising.

Brush with melted butter and top with freshly grated Asiago (Parmesan or Romano work well, too).  Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes.  Remove from the oven when the tops are golden brown.

Be ready to bake more because the family will devour these in record time!
