Alphabet Bread Sticks

2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1 ounce fresh Parmesan cheese, grated (1/4 cup)
1 package (6.5 ounces) pizza crust mix
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
1/2 cup hot water
All-purpose flour
1 garlic clove
1 can (8 ounces) pizza sauce

1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Place butter in Small Batter Bowl and set aside to soften at room temperature.

2. Using Deluxe Cheese Grater fitted with fine grating drum, grate Parmesan cheese into Classic Batter Bowl. Stir in pizza crust mix and oregano using Bamboo Spoon.

3. Add hot water and stir until moistened. Continue to stir vigorously about 25 strokes. Cover batter bowl with lid and let stand 5 minutes in a warm place.

4. Sprinkle a small amount of flour over a Cutting Board so the dough doesn’t stick. Turn dough out onto cutting board and knead the dough 10-12 times (see Cook’s Tip). Divide dough into 8 equal pieces using Pizza Cutter. Using hands, roll each piece into a 10-inch rope.

5. Shape ropes into letters on Rectangle or Large Round Stone.

6. Using Garlic Press, press garlic over softened butter in batter bowl and mix with bamboo spoon. Spread butter mixture over letters using All-Purpose Spreader.

7. Adult help: Bake 11-12 minutes or until golden brown. Using Oven Mitts, remove from oven.

8. Pour pizza sauce into Small Micro-Cooker®. Microwave on HIGH 1-11/2 minutes or until warm. Serve warm bread sticks with pizza sauce for dipping.
