Also, why can't we twist recipe contests together and make the best of all of them right?? Anyway, these twisters are basically fancy breadsticks. They can dress up for the most elegant of guests, but dress down for the kids. Plus, let the kids help make them!
At this point, we know I didn't win, BUT the recipe itself is a winner!
Creamy Sundried Tomato Twisters
1 can of pizza dough
1/2 cup sundried tomatoes packed in oil, chopped
1/3 cup baby spinach leaves, chopped
4 ounces of cream cheese
1/4 cup pine nuts, chopped
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Roll out the pizza dough to 10x16 inches. Cut 8 10-inch long, 2-inch wide strips. Combine the sundried tomatoes, spinach, and cream cheese. Mix well. Spread on 4 of the breadsticks. Top with pine nuts. Take one remaining breadstick and wrap it around the first, making them look as though they are "twisted" together. Repeat with remaining breadsticks. Place the breadsticks on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 8-12 minutes, until the breadsticks are golden brown.
Stay tuned for Friday--I've come up with a new category (one I can't believe I didn't think of before), and I can't wait to show you the first recipe!
Until the next time my oven is on...
