This was very easy to make and turned out quite impressive. I filled with fruit and mixed nuts in the shell and it makes a lovey centerpiece for the Thanksgiving table. Thanks for sharing

Wow! Unbelievable! I had to make one substitution because I couldn't find refrigerated breadstick dough where I live. I mixed up and used an ordinary bread dough. The results were still spectacular. I made two, and put vegetables in one and fruits in the other. You should have heard the comments! They were so good I wish I'd had a tape recorder with me. And when my visitors found they could eat them... What more can I say? Not an easy item to make, but well worth the effort.

My best friend from high school and I get together before Thanksgiving to make this every year since 1st posted in 2002! We found that freezing it works well for up to 2 weeks before the big turkey day. We both get raves and rants everytime our guests see our creation - we are having a harder time finding breadsticks in our stores and are not sure why? Can't imagine them not being popular. Thanks for the instructions. I'm making a couple extra to share with friends this year too :O)

Such fun! It made everyone really WANT to eat the vegetables. I got so many compliments and other moms say "thanks...now I'll really have to step up my game." But it was SO easy to do and was a fun and beautiful conversation piece and horsdeouvre!

I made this for Thanksgiving last year and forgot to review it....and then I was looking at pictures and found the pictures I had taken of it. I made this with my 5yr old granddaughter and we had a blast! It turned out perfect and was a hit at the Thanksgiving Dinner.....

Fabulous centerpiece from Woman's Day! I sprinkled sesame seeds over egg wash. I ended up with a hole or two in the cornucopia, but no one seemed to care - easily covered with vegetables. Work quickly as chilled breadstick dough becomes harder to work with as it warms/softens.

This is always spectacular on a thanksgiving table. Just around thanksgiving I buy bagels for the seeds that are left on the bottom of the bagel bag. I then use the seeds as an extra decoration on the cornucopia. It looks great. Instead of the vegetables, I put in breadsticks, rye bread, rolls that will accompany the thanksgiving meal. Thanks Paula & Matt. If you could rename the cornucopia to thanksgiving cornucopia, a lot more people would love to use this recipe!!

This was an impressive centerpiece for Thanksgiving! I got lots of compliments. I put whole fruit in it, but I think the veggies would be more fun. I'm in China, so there's no refrigerated breadstick dough. I made a basic bread dough and used that, which worked fine. My oven is also not big enough to fit the specified size, so I just made it as big as I could.
