Every year I have made a cornucopia out of bread dough. It is so easy. It does take a lot of foil, but a lot of fun to make. It makes a great centerpiece for holiday table. I wasn't going to make one this year. But I am going to my sons home, and his wife has no idea of what I was talking about when I mentioned it to her. So I think I will make one for her table. I have always filled it with nuts and other small food items and had them spilling out of the mouth of the cornucopia.
You take the foil and shape it like a cornucopia. Then you grease it so that you can get the foil out after the bread has baked. Using just flour and water, you can make the dough. Roll it out and then shape it around the foil shape. Seal the seam on the bottom. You decorate it with cutouts from leftover dough, or weave strips of the dough to make it look like a basket. Brush the dough with an egg wash to give it a nice shine. Then bake in your oven 350ºF. until it is the color you want.
Illegitimi non carborundum!
