BLACK PEPPER GRISSINI:
½ cup warm water
1 tablespoon active-dry Yeast
1 ½ cup All Purpose Flour
1/3 cup Semolina Flour
¼ cup freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano
1 teaspoon Sea Salt
2 tablespoons Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 teaspoons fresh cracked Black Pepper
Oven preheated to 400
Combine water and Yeast. Let grow slightly under warmth for 10 minutes. While waiting, combine dry ingredients in large mixing bowl then make a well in the center. Add water/yeast mixture to the well then add extra virgin olive oil. Mix until dough forms and stops taking in the dry ingredients. You will have some dry left over. The dough should be smooth and supple not crumbly or stiff. Transfer dough to another mixing bowl then cover will warm damp towel and let rise for 15 min. It will soften slightly and become very easy to work with. Cut the dough in half and lightly flour a large smooth work surface. Roll the dough out with a pin until you get a layer about a ¼ of an inch thick. Then cut into long strips ½ in. wide, 8 in. long. Place onto a very lightly floured sheet pan making sure there is an inch gap in between all Grissini. Drizzle olive oil over the top and sprinkle with sea salt. Bake at 400 for 6-8 minutes or until a nice golden brown colored is achieved. Let Cool and serve as a snack or garnish for your favorite soup!
