"Yum, soft garlic bread sticks! They are delicious warm from the oven. Garlic bread sticks taste great with so many meals. They can be a nice appetizer or a light snack too. If you prefer not to brush with butter, you can use a light tasting olive oil. You can find the Garlic Bread Sprinkle in the spice section of the grocery store."

Step by Step Method
Grease a small mixing bowl and set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, add the yeast, salt, sugar, garlic powder, basil, oil, and hot water. With a mixer, mix for 2 minutes.
Add 1 cup of flour and 3 Tablespoons of powdered milk. Mix for another 2 minutes.
Using a wooden spoon, stir in the rest of the flour until combined.
Remove the dough from the bowl out onto a lightly floured surface. Knead the dough for 10 minutes until smooth and elastic. You may need to sprinkle a little flour on your dough or counter top if the dough is still too sticky.
Place the dough in the greased bowl; flip the dough over so greased side is up. Cover dough loosely with a piece of plastic wrap. Let it rise until double in a warm place; 45-60 minutes.
Line 2 cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Cut 15 pieces of dough.
Dust a surface very lightly with flour and roll the pieces of dough into 8-inch sticks.
Place bread sticks on parchment paper and reshape a bit more to keep the sticks fairly straight and even. Cover with towel and let rest for another 15-20 minutes.
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Bake bread sticks for approximately 18 minutes, or until lightly golden browned.
Remove from oven and brush sticks generously with melted butter and sprinkle with Garlic Bread Sprinkle.
