Okay so this had the potential to be a really cute project. And when I do it again, it will be. But it was the first time I did it, so there were dumb mistakes. And I stupidly forgot to take a final picture, so just pretend it looks awesome!
Step 1. Use a piece of heavy piece of foil and spray it lightly with cooking oil. Wipe off the excess, you want it to not stick but not be slippery.Step 2. Bend the foil into a cone.Step 3. Twist the end up so it looks like a sad cornucopia.Step 4. Loosely ball up some more foil and stuff it inside the cone.Step 5. Get out your breadstick dough. Don’t use other kinds of dough because it doesn’t work.Step 6. Shape your dough from the flat things into rollsStep 7. Start winding the dough ropes around your cone, being sure to pinch each connection.Step 8. Wind around the whole thing, but save three ropes.Step 9. Braid your last three ropes to put at the opening of the cornucopia.(no picture) Step 10. Brush an egg wash over your dough, bake at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes until it gets a nice deep brown color.
This is a VERY easy project to do that makes a great Thanksgiving centerpiece. You could make it a tradition to do with your kids before Thanksgiving each year! Also, you could make it a few days ahead of time since it holds very well. And after Thanksgiving is over, your can rip it up to use for eating with chili or soup!
