Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 375º. Line 2 cookie sheets with cooking parchment paper. Make roll mix as directed on package, using 1 egg, the butter and water, and adding cheese to dough when mixing.
  • 2 Divide dough in half. Mix food color into half of dough. Divide each half into 24 pieces; roll each piece on lightly floured surface into 8-inch rope. Twist 1 red and 1 plain rope together; press ends to seal. Form each twist into candy cane shape. Place candy canes 2 inches apart on cookie sheets; brush with beaten egg. Let stand 5 minutes before baking.
  • 3 Bake 10 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from cookie sheet to wire rack; serve warm or cool slightly.
  • 4 Mix oil and pesto. Serve breadsticks with pesto oil for dipping. Store breadsticks in tightly sealed container at room temperature up to 24 hours.

EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Substitute grated Parmesan cheese for the Asiago cheese in this recipe if Asiago is unavailable.

Asiago cheese is an Italian semifirm cow's milk cheese that has a very rich and nutty flavor. Asiago that has been aged for at least a year is harder and more suitable for grating.
