My daughter Brandi, shared a new breadstick recipe with me the other day. She got the recipe from the friend of a friend. Brandi even took a picture for me, so that I could see how light and fluffy they are. The ingredient that makes these breadsticks unique, is Cottage cheese. Who knew! In fact, she thinks they are her new favorite. I can’t wait to try these out myself. Thanks Bran!

2 pkg yeast (2 1/4tsp)
