Garlic Breadsticks

K, I just got this off of allrecipes, but they turned out really nicely.

1 1/8 cups water (70 to 80 degrees F)
2 tablespoons olive or canola oil
3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons sugar
3 teaspoons garlic powder
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoon minced fresh basil
3 cups bread flour
2 teaspoons active dry yeast
1 tablespoon butter or stick margarine, melted

In bread machine pan, place the first nine ingredients in order suggested by manufacturer. Select dough setting (check dough after 5 minutes of mixing; add 1 to 2 tablespoons of water or flour if needed). When cycle is completed, turn dough onto a lightly floured surface. Divide into 20 portions. Shape each into a ball; roll each into a 9-in. rope. Place on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise in a warm place for 40 minutes or until doubled. Bake at 350 degrees F for 18-22 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks. Brush warm breadsticks with butter
*So, I made mine in the Kitchenaid instead of the bread machine. I just mixed the dry ingredients together in a bowl except for the yeast. I put the water and oil in the mixer and then took out a third of the dry ingredients and mixed it with the RapidRise yeast and dumped it into the water while it mixed with the dough hook. Then I added the rest of the dry ingredients slowly. I was also out of parmesan cheese, so I just did without and they were still good. I rubbed a stick of butter over the top while they were still warm and yum!

GARLIC BUTTER: (I didn't try this, but next time...)

1 cup butter, softened
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground paprika

In a small bowl, combine softened butter, minced garlic and parmesan cheese. Season with garlic salt, Italian seasoning, pepper and paprika. Mix until smooth.
