Cupid's Breadsticks Recipe

Cupid's Breadsticks Recipe

Our Test Kitchen home economists encourage you to play with your food and shape refrigerated breadsticks into hearts and arrows! A sprinkling of seasonings provides the finishing touch.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 tube (11 ounces) refrigerated breadsticks
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried minced onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1/8 teaspoon onion powder

Directions

  • 1. Separate breadstick dough into six pieces. For each heart, unroll four pieces and twist if desired; seal perforations and pinch ends together. Shape into hearts on an ungreased baking sheet.
  • 2. For arrows, unroll remaining two pieces and separate into four breadsticks. With scissors, cut one end of each breadstick into a point. About 2 in. from the point, cut out a triangle from both sides of breadsticks (discard removed pieces). At the other end of the breadstick, make diagonal cuts on each side, creating feathers. Place on baking sheet with hearts.
  • 3. Combine butter and seasonings; brush over dough. Bake at 375° for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Yield: 4 hearts and 4 arrows.
