Author Melissa Sperka

Ingredients

  • 2 loaves Rhodes frozen white bread or 16 yeast/dinner roll rounds thawed
  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • Cream Cheese Dip:
  • 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/3 cup whipped cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup heavy cream [more if needed to thin]
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Thaw the bread loaves in the refrigerator overnight. The dough should be thawed but still cold. If using dinner rolls, dough may be thawed for 20-30 minutes on counter.
  • Use a pizza cutter to cut the loaves into 8 strips each. For larger bread sticks, cut each loaf into 6 pieces. Dinner rolls - no need to cut.
  • Roll each dough strip into a 6 inch rope. For smaller bread sticks, cut each rope in half. (If using dinner rolls, roll each into 4" ropes.)
  • Mix together the brown sugar, granulated sugar, cinnamon and allspice until combined.
  • Dip each piece of dough into the melted butter then roll in the cinnamon sugar.
  • Place side by side on a parchment lined baking sheet. Shape the ends of the bread sticks so they are uniform in size and will bake evenly.
  • Lay a piece of plastic wrap on top, and allow to rise in a draft free place for around 1 1/2-2 hours or until doubled in size.
  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Bake for 25 minutes until golden.
  • Rest on the pan for 5 minutes before glazing.
  • Use a hand mixer to whip together the ingredients for the cream cheese dip. After combining, warm gently in the microwave to make it pourable.
  • Drizzle over the bread sticks then serve the remainder on the side for dipping.
  • Pull apart and enjoy! : 16 medium or 32 small bread sticks and approximately 1 cup cream cheese dip

Notes

  • If you are unable to locate loaves of dough, adapt using the unbaked rounds of yeast or dinner rolls. Due to the smaller size of dough, the bread sticks will be shorter and you may be able to yield a greater amount using additional rounds of dough.
  • When using a plain block cream cheese in place of whipped cream cheese for the dip, additional cream may be needed to thin. It should be the consistency of thick syrup.
