Sophie's Herb Breadsticks

This bread is so easy to make.  We will have pasta today and what's the best partner for it but the bread sticks with parmesan and herbs.  There are a lot of copycat recipes of the Pizza hut bread stick recipes over the net.  I chose to do a twist in making this one though.  Instead of just using plain flour, I decided to use a cup of breadflour to make the dough more elastic and heavier when baked.  Instead of adding 2 tbsp of yeast I only used 1 packet which is 7 g and almost a tbsp.  I also added more toppings to it.  The top of the bread was crispy and you can really taste the parmesan and the herbs in each bite you take. 

2 c plain flour
1 c bread flour
1 1/2 c hot water
1/2 powdered milk
1/2 tsp salt
2 tbsp granulated sugar
7 g yeast (1 packet)
80 g butter, melted
1/2 tsp oregano
1/2 tsp basil
1/2 tsp season all
1 garlic granules
1/3 c parmesan cheese, shredded
salt and pepper to taste

Dissolve powdered milk, 1/2 tsp salt and sugar in the hot water. 
Stir in 1 c of flour.  Make sure that everything is well blended.
When the temperature of the mixture is tepid, stir in the yeast until you see frothy thing on top of the mixture.
Put in the rest of the flour.  Mix thoroughly.  I used the paddle attachments of the electric handmixer for this. 
Knead until smooth.
Put half of the melted butter onto a square pan and make sure that you also grease the sides. 
Pour the batter onto the pan. Use a spatula to level it. 
Cut the batter using a sharp knife or a pizza cutter.

Brush with the remainder of the butter.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper, oregano, garlic granules, season all mix, and parmesan.
Let rise for 20 minutes.
Bake in 175C preheated oven for 20 minutes or until a bit brown.
