- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter room temperature
- ¼ cup + 1 tablespoon ice cold water
- Marinara sauce for dipping
- Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Whisk all dry ingredients in a medium bowl together. Add butter and mix with your fingertips until evenly combined.
- Add water, gently knead with your hands to get a slightly smooth dough (don't knead too much, mix until it comes together and look smooth). (Add ½ to 1 teaspoon addional water if needed)
- Divide dough into 20 small pieces. Roll each piece with the palm of hands on the kitchen counter to get a 12-inch long breadstick (don't bother if it breaks, just pinch it back together and proceed).
- Gently transfer the breadstick onto the baking sheet and proceed with remaining dough. Lay breadsticks in a single layer and not touching each other (they will not expand).
- Bake for 35-40 minutes until golden brown in color (rotate pan halfway through baking).
- Place pan on a wire rack to cool completely.
