Ingredients
Directions
  • In a large bowl, stir yeast into water to soften. Add shortening, sugar, salt, and 3 cups flour. Beat vigorously for two minutes.

  • Gradually add flour, 1/4 cup at a time, until the dough begins to pull away from the side of the bowl.

  • Turn dough out onto an oiled bowl. Turn to coat the entire ball of dough with oil. Cover with a tightly woven towel and let rise until doubled, about one hour.

  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly oiled work surface and divide into 48 pieces for thick breadsticks or 72 pieces if you prefer thinner ones. Roll each piece into a 10-inch long strand. Scatter the nuts over the work surface. Lightly roll the strand in the nuts so the strands become coated. Place on well-greased baking sheets. Cover with a tightly woven towel and let rise until almost doubled, about 45 minutes.

  • About 10 minutes before baking, preheat oven to 400 degrees.

  • Bake thick breadsticks for 20 minutes, thin ones for 15 minutes.

  • Immediately remove breadsticks from baking sheets and cool on a rack.
