Witch Fingers Breadsticks

I have a fluffy buttery breadstick recipe that is one of my family’s all time favorite. We love to make them with soups, salads, pastas (never too many carbs baby!) It’s so easy to turn the breadstick recipe into witch fingers!!  These witch fingers breadsticks will be the hit of the party!!

The original breadsticks recipe I like to make them thick and fluffy, but for these witches fingers I make them skinny. I also like to cook them a little bit longer so that they are a little more crunchy- it makes them PERFECT for dipping into soups and chili’s. If you are serving them more as a side or stand alone dish you can cook them for less time and they will be soft and fluffy too.

How to make Witch Fingers Breadsticks

The Dough

What I love about this recipe is how simple the dough it! Most of my mom’s recipes require hours of rising, lots of kneading, and she does make pretty incredible breads. However, for this recipe you don’t have to do that! This recipe-start to finish- will be done in less than an hour.

The Fingers

My tips for the fingers:

  1. Don’t skimp on the butter!
  2. Use a pizza cutter!!
  3. Put almonds on fingers before they rise, so the dough will form around them.
  4. Use the best seasonings….

The Seasonings

I am really all for using the best salts. It can make or break a recipe sometimes, especially one like this were most of the flavor is coming from the seasonings. Some of my very favorites (and we have taste tested!) are sea salt from redmonds real salt (I personally love Kosher salt because it is course), and this Johnny’s garlic spread. The garlic spread is not salty, so you definitely need to use both salt and spread.
