Very Easy Parmesan & Garlic Breadstick Recipe

2 1/4 c. warm water
2 T. yeast
3 T. sugar
1 T. salt
2 T. shortening or oil
4-5 c. flour (or more)--They should not be too sticky, but sticky enough for you to need flour on your hands

Garlic mixture:
1/4 c. margarine or butter
Garlic Salt
Dry parsley
Parmesan cheese

Mix warm water, yeast and sugar in bowl and let dissolve.  Add salt, shortening or oil.   Add some of the flour.  Stir.  Knead in the rest of the flour to get soft dough.  Do not let it get stiff.  Let rest 10 minutes.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees and grease cookie sheet.  Melt butter and add garlic salt to taste.  Press dough into cookie sheet and cut into breadsticks with pizza cutter or form into long skinny breadsticks.  Let dough rest 10 minutes.  Brush breadsticks with garlic mixture; sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and dry parsley.  Bake for 10 minutes or until light golden brown.

**What I love about this recipe is that it is so QUICK.  Most breadsticks this yummy take much more preparation time and if you are like me, I sometimes forget to get started soon enough, so this is a winner!
