Thanksgiving is a holiday where we gather with family and friends to give thanks for all of the blessings in our life. The cornucopia, or horn of plenty, is a traditional symbol of the holiday.
I have been making this bread cornucopia for many years. I began by making it for my first elementary classes for our Thanksgiving feast. Then, when I had my own children, I always included this fun and festive centerpiece in our Thanksgiving dinner. These past couple of years, I have not included it and it has been missed. I recently was scrolling Pinterest and spotted this pin. I instantly knew what I should make!
When I went to the market to pick up the ingredients, I couldn’t find Pillsbury breadsticks. Instead, I purchased a couple of cans of Pillsbury pizza crust. It worked out just as well.
- 2 cans of Pillsbury breadsticks (or pizza crust)
- aluminum foil
- non-stick spray
- 1 egg
- 1 tablespoon water
- pizza cutter
- pastry brush
To create your own bread cornucopia, follow these simple step by step directions:
- Preheat your oven according to package directions.
- Create a cornucopia shape with your foil and spray it with non-stick spray.
- Open cans of dough. If you are not using breadsticks, use a pizza cutter to cut the dough into strips.
- Starting at the end of the cornucopia, wrap the dough strips around the foil, slightly overlapping the dough.
- When complete, twist the final dough strip and place around the opening of the cornucopia.
- Beat the egg and a tablespoon of water in a small bowl to create an egg wash.
- Brush the egg wash onto the bread cornucopia and bake.
Keep an eye on it as it may brown quickly. After mine was browned, I tented it with foil and let it bake an additional few minutes to ensure the dough was cooked.
I hope you enjoy this festive, edible bread cornucopia on your holiday table. Wishing you a blessed Thanksgiving!
