0 Buttery Breadsticks: 'Dem Bones!

I wish I could take credit for a fun Halloween shape! The credit goes to Rhodes. They also have a cute hot dog mummy wrapped in roll dough. Fun! Makes me wish my boys were little again!

These were fun to make and even more fun to give away to my friends!

Buttery Breadsticks
(Dinner Roll Recipe)
Ingredients
4 1/4 - 4 3/4 c. all purpose flour
1 T. active dry yeast
1 T. vital wheat gluten (optional)
1 c. milk
1/3 c. granulated sugar
1/3 c. butter, margarine or shortening
3/4 t. salt
2 beaten eggs, room temperature
1/4 c. butter, for dipping


InstructionsPut 2 c. flour in mixing bowl. Add yeast, gluten and salt. Mix well. 
Put eggs in a drinking glass and fill up with hot tap water; set aside. 
In a microwave safe bowl, combine milk, sugar, butter and melt on 1/2 power (50 or 50%) in microwave for 3 minutes or until butter is almost melted. 
Stir until butter and sugar is dissolved. 
Drain water from eggs. Add eggs to milk mixture. 
Pour into flour mixture and mix well. Allow to sponge (sit) for 10 minutes.

Add rest of flour, one cup at a time until dough clings to hook and almost cleans the sides.
Touch dough lightly.  Add more flour if dough sticks to your fingers.  Knead for 3-4 minutes.  Dough should be soft, smooth, elastic, wet and not sticky.  

Scrape down sides of bowl, oil the top and cover with plastic wrap.  
Allow to rise to double in warm, draft free place (in oven with pan of hot tap water underneath) for 30 minutes.
Melt butter or margarine in a small microwave safe dish. 
For "bone" shape, roll each pile of dough into a rectangle. Cut into 12-1" strips. With scissors, cut a 1 1/2" slit on each end. Fold each slit under the 'bone' and spread apart to create the desired shape. 
Dip each bone in melted butter, set on baking sheet and sprinkle with garlic seasoning.
Cover with plastic wrap; rise till double (20-30 min).

Bake in 375 degree oven for 12-14 minutes - till golden brown.

Enjoy!
