Rosemary Grissini

Scott Phillips

Yield: Yields about 26

These rich, buttery breadsticks are a great garnish for Heirloom Tomato, Burrata, and Basil Verrines. They’re also a delicious snack all on their own.


  • 2-1/4 oz. (1/2 cup) bread flour
  • 1 tsp. finely chopped fresh rosemary
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp. kosher salt
  • 1 Tbs. unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup heavy cream


  • Position a rack in the middle of the oven and heat the oven to 350°F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, rosemary, baking powder, sugar, baking soda, and salt. Using your fingers, disperse the butter evenly in the flour mixture until it resembles coarse meal. Add the cream and stir with your fingers until a soft, tacky dough forms. Form the dough into a square, wrap in plastic wrap, and chill until slightly firm, about 15 minutes.
  • On a well-floured surface, roll the dough into a rectangle approximately 5×13 inches, and cut it crosswise into 1/2-inch strips (you will have about 26 strips). Working with one strip at a time, twist repeatedly (without pulling) into a tight spiral and place on the parchment-lined baking sheet, spaced about 1 inch apart.
  • Bake until the bottoms of the twists are brown, about 7 minutes, then carefully turn over and bake until brown all over, about 3 minutes more. Cool the grissini on the parchment on a rack.

Make Ahead Tips

The grissini can be stored in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
