Crisp, keepable, quickly made, these might easily replace pretzels in your life—or at least keep them company on the snack shelf. You can make them plain, but if you take our busybody advice, you’ll stick in the seeds. Breadsticks make pleasant picnic fare and look lovely in a glass or mug on the table at meals.

If you’d like to make baton-length breadsticks, cut the dough into 16 pieces and roll each into a 16-inch rope.
