My mom has been making these for as long as I can remember and they are SSOOOO good!!!!
1 1/2 cup warm water
1 TBS yeast
2 TBS sugar
1 tsp salt
4 cups flour
6 TBS butter on the pan
Mix the water, yeast, sugar, and salt and let them foam. Get a large baking sheet with 6 TBS butter cut up on it and put it into the preheating oven so the butter will melt (watch it, don't let the butter burn!)
butter on the pan
Add the flour to the yeast mixture, mix and knead it until it is smooth and not sticky. Let it rise for 10-15 minutes. Roll out the dough on a floured surface until it is... I've never measured but I'd say like 10x 15 or so, so the dough is still like an inch thick. Get a pizza cutter and cut the dough in half lengthwise and then cut into strips.
Take each strip and coat each side with the butter on the pan, and twist it up.
Then sprinkle it with garlic salt and Parmesan cheese. Cook at 375 degrees for about 10 minutes (check the bottom it should be a golden brown)
