Sour Cream Breadstick Recipe

Sour Cream Breadstick Recipe

  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 12 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 12 breadsticks 1x


This easy no-yeast breadstick recipe makes breadsticks that are light and flaky – a perfect addition to any meal.



  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup butter
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chives
  • 1 1/4 cups sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • coarse salt


  1. Preheat the oven to 450F.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder and salt. Using a pastry cutter or a fork, cut in the butter until it looks like fine crumbs. Stir in the chives. Add the sour cream and stir just until it comes together in a ball.
  3. Lightly flour a work surface and turn the dough out. Knead the dough lightly 10 times, or until it comes together into a smooth ball. Roll the dough into a 12×8-inch rectangle. Cut it into 12 1-inch wide strips. Place them 1 inch apart on an ungreased baking sheet. Brush lightly with the melted butter, and sprinkle with coarse salt.
  4. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
