Bake my day: No table should be without these oven-made breadsticks
Makes 4 balls, each about 6 ounces (185 g)
1 package active dry or fresh yeast
1 tablespoon honey
1 cup (250 mL) warm water, 105-115 F (40-46 C)
3 cups (750 mL) all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast and honey in 1/4 cup (60 mL) of the warm water.
In a food processor, combine the flour and salt. Add the oil, the yeast mixture, and the remaining water and process until the mixture forms a ball.
Turn the dough out onto a clean work surface and knead by hand 2 or 3 minutes longer. The dough should be smooth and firm. Cover with a clean, damp towel and let rise in a cool spot for about 2 hours. (When ready, the dough will stretch as it is lightly pulled).
