Butter Bread Sticks
- 4 slices white bread
- soft butter - salted or unsalted
- caster sugar - for coating
- Cut away two sides of the bread crust, then cut into 6 sticks with a sharp knife. Place bread sticks on a baking tray lined with parchment paper. **if the white bread is too soft, then place the bread in the chiller for an hour before cutting them neatly with a sharp knife.
- Bake in the preheated oven at 150 degrees C for 2 minutes and flip the bread sticks over and continue to bake for another 2 minutes to a bit dry (so it's easier to spread soft butter on it).
- Leave the bread sticks to cool. Then spread soft butter on both sides of the bread sticks and coat with caster sugar.
- Place the coated bread sticks back to the oven and continue to bake on each side for 7-8 minutes till crusty but not burned.
- Leave butter bread sticks to cool before storing them in an airtight container. **can last and stay crispy even after 10 days.**
