Bread Sticks - a crunchy snack

My daughter loves bread sticks. Not only now but since she was a baby, she used to use them as a teether. She still loves them and when the other day while doing groceries, she picked a pack from the store, I was tempted to try them as I am a little freak when it comes to bakery or pre-packaged product. I don't use organic products but I try to make maximum things at home and avoid junk food altogether. 

The recipe credit goes to Betty Crocker via my sister who had tried it before and she sent me a picture of the recipe. In my opinion, your normal pizza or bread dough would work if the process is followed as mentioned in this recipe. Interesting fact I came to know when I sent it to my Egyptian neighbor and friend that in French it is called Patton Salee. Ideal for soups and salad or just to munch,here goes the recipe.
