Garlic Cheese Twists

These are a nice alternative to regular breadsticks or rolls.
And they are fun to make!
Garlic Cheese Twists
1 loaf Bread dough (I use this recipe)
2-3 Tbsp. butter
garlic powder
Parmesan cheese
2 Tbsp. milk

Roll dough out into a rectangle shape, about 1/8" thick.
Using the back of a spoon, spread the butter over the entire surface of dough.
Sprinkle garlic powder and parmesan cheese all over butter.
Fold the dough in half, seasoned sides together, and pinch the edges together.

Use a pizza cutter to cut dough into thin strips.
Take each strip by the ends and twist 2 or 3 times.
Place on a greased cookie sheet.
Use a pastry brush and brush milk over each stick (to help with browning).

Let rise for 25 minutes.
Bake at 350 for 15 minutes.
1 loaf of bread makes 12-18 twists.

**The bread dough I make uses Instant Yeast, so I only need to let it rise once.  If you use regular yeast, let it rise until double.  Punch it down, roll it out and then make your breadsticks.  You will then have to let it rise again before baking.
