Yield:
24 hors d’oeuvres

Ingredients
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons solid vegetable shortening
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 24 paper-thin slices prosciutto di Parma
Directions
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In the bowl of a food processor pulse flour, salt and baking powder to combine. Add the shortening and pulse until the mixture resembles coarse meal. With machine running, gradually add between 1/2 and 3/4 cup ice water until the dough comes together, about 1 minute.

  • Transfer dough to a lightly floured surface. Form into a smooth rectangle, about 4 by 6 inches, with your fingers. Then roll out the dough into an 8 by 10-inch sheet, 1/4-inch thick. Cut dough lengthwise into 1/4-inchwide strips.

  • Using your hands, gently roll each strip back and forth into 16-inch long sticks. For the twisted version, grab each end of the dough strip with your fingers and carefully stretch and twist the strip in opposite directions. Arrange sticks on 2 baking sheets, side by side but not touching. Lightly brush with olive oil. Press ends onto the baking sheet to keep the sticks straight while they bake.

  • Bake until firm and cooked through, 14 to 18 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Wrap a slice of prosciutto around each breadstick. Arrange on a platter and serve.
