In a large bowl, dissolve yeast and sugar in the hot water, gently stirring to break up any clumps. Let stand until creamy and almost doubled, about 10 minutes or so. Meanwhile, lightly grease a baking sheet with cooking spray and sprinkle lightly with cornmeal. Set aside. If your cheese is not already shredded, shred your cheese while the yeast burps and bubbles. Stir flour, salt and oil into yeast mixture. Use hands to mix well. Let stand and rest about 5 minutes While the dough rests, start your marinara sauce, if using. Also, melt the butter for 30-45 seconds in the microwave in a heatproof cup. Mix in the garlic powder and ½ tsp of salt. Set aside. On a floured surface, roll the dough in a rectangle that is approximately 10"x 14" with a long edge toward you. Stir the garlic butter well and brush half of the garlic butter over the dough, leaving about 1" of the dough butter-free around the edges. Sprinkle all but 1 handful of the shredded cheese over the long bottom half of the dough. Fold the top half of the dough over the bottom half, matching up the edges. Roll and pinch the sides and bottom seams of the dough together. Transfer carefully to the baking sheet and press slightly to flatten. Stir the remaining garlic butter well again and brush over the top. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over that. Bake 10-15 minute or until the edges are golden brown and the cheese is a dark-but-not-burnt brown. Watch it carefully after 10 minutes! Remove from the oven and let sit for 5 minutes before cutting into 12 breadsticks. Notes If you want garlic butter to dunk your breadsticks into, just double the butter (1 stick or ½ cup), garlic powder (1 Tbsp), and salt (1 tsp). Use ¼ of the mix for brushing the inside of the dough and ¼ for brushing the outside and use the remaining half for dunking. 3.2.2708
