Bread Cornucopia

Quick! Before we hit Christmas I have to share my Thanksgiving craft.

When I saw these directions for shaping a cornucopia out of bread, I knew I had to make one for our Thanksgiving Day centerpiece! It's one of those things that looks sooo complex but was pretty simple to put together.

I used a soft pretzel recipe for the dough, but I really need to find a new one because the one we use just does not stretch & roll very well. I basically had to squeeze the dough into a coil & hope that it didn't fall apart on me! I skipped the baking soda bath you normally use for pretzels & brushed on some egg at the end to get some nice browning on top.
