  1. : Place water, milk, sugar, salt, shortening and olive oil in bowl and dissolve sugar and salt. Stir in yeast, semolina or corn meal, all purpose flour and knead to form a soft, but not too sticky dough, 8 to 10 minutes. Allow to rest, covered with a damp towel about 45 minutes. Deflate dough very gently before using and allow it to rest a further 15 minutes before using. Preheat oven to 450 F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and sprinkle with corn meal or semolina. Roll out dough on a floured board, about 1/4 inch thick. Cut with a pastry wheel or anyway you can, into long strips, 10 to 12 inches long. Gently lift bread sticks onto baking sheet. Brush with oil or butter. Sprinkle with cheese (or coarse salt, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, herbs, caraway seeds, etc.). Bake 5 to 8 minutes until evenly browned. They will crisp as they cool.
