Quick and Easy Bread Sticks

I got this recipe from Lynda Nelson while living in Montana. It is always amazing to me how I forget about simple recipes like this that are a hit with my family. Why I don't make them more often. I made these for a simple dinner with soup when I had my nieces and nephews for the day. They loved them so much and asked for the recipe to take home to their mom. Then she asked me to make them for our Father's Day meal assignment and so we had them twice in one week. Guess I should be prepared to make them more often this fall.

Bread Sticks
1 Tablespoon instant yeast
1 1/2 cups warm water
1 Tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon salt
4 cups flour

Mix together and knead in mixer for 10 minutes. Meanwhile melt 1/2 cup butter or margarine in a cake pan in the oven. (I always use half the amount of butter and use a cookie sheet). Be careful not to scorch the butter. When dough is ready, roll it out into a rectangle similar in size to your pan. Cut into 1 inch strips. Place in pan, turning so all sides are coated with melted butter. Sprinkle with garlic salt and Parmesan Cheese Let rise about 15 minutes. Bake 20-25 minutes at 425 degrees.

Yummy! I've been wanting to try these forever.
I made one half according to directions and the other half I tried the Johnny garlic spread from Costco. Similar in flavor ...but I still prefer your way.
Oh and could you tell me, using a bosch, which speed I'm supposed to "knead" this dough on?
