  1. 3/4 c Warm water

  2. 3/4 c Warm beer

  3. 1 pt Dry yeast

  4. 3/4 c Olive oil( good quality! )

  5. 1 tb Fennel seeds

  6. 1 1/2 ts Salt

  7. 4 1/2 c Flour( approx )

  8. Glaze: 1 Egg

  9. 1 tb Water

  10. 10 minutes or until very foamy. Add olive oil, salt and fennel seeds. Mix in

  11. 3 1/2 cups flour and knead until smooth and elastic adding more flour as needed to prevent stickiness.Place dough in oiled bowl, cover and let rise double. Punch down dough and divide into 12 balls and divide each ball into 4 pieces. Roll each 1 inch apart. Brush with egg glaze.Bake immediately,

  12. 350 until golden about 30 minutes. Note: I also like to sprinkle on rosemary, anise or other seeds on the dough.Plus I make my bread sticks larger by dividing the

  13. 12 balls of dough in

  14. 2 or 3 pieces instead of

  15. 4. And I also like to brush on extra virgin olive oil instead of the egg wash over the breadsticks prior to baking them.then you have to turn them over during baking and brush more oil on them to brown the other side. I like the taste good olive oil gives! --
