For tender breadsticks, knead in just enough Bisquick mix so the dough is smooth and no longer sticky. Too much will toughen the biscuits.

These were amazing dipped in tomato soup or just plain! I've even adjusted the recipe some by adding basil, garlic salt, and oregano to the butter, or adding italian dipping seasonings. Whenever there's leftovers of these, they never last more then a day :)

This is one of my all-time rock-solid standards! It can be whipped up in a couple minutes to round out a meal or add to add that "company-special" touch. Endless variations: Garlic powder and salt sprinkled in the butter before turning dough yields great garlicky sticks.Poppy seeds, sesame seeds or onion flakes sprinkled on top are a savory change.
