How to Make Holiday Cornucopia Bread Centerpiece
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray a 17x14 inch (or large) cookie sheet with nonstick cooking spray.
Tear off a 30x18 inch sheet of heavy duty aluminum foil.
Fold it in half to 18x15 inch.
Roll out to form a hollow cone, about 18 inches long with a diameter of 5 inches at the widest end (Cornucopia opening).
Fasten end with clear scotch tape.

Bend tail of cone up then down at end. Spray outside of cone with cooking spray.

Beat the egg with the water to make a glaze.
- Open and unroll the first can of bread stick dough on the counter. Separate bread sticks. Begin by wrapping one bread stick around tip of cone. Brush end of next bread stick with Glaze and press to attach to end of first bread stick. Continue spiral-wrapping cone, slightly overlapping dough until there are 3 bread sticks left.

Brush bread around opening of cornucopia with glaze.
