Hey Friends!

Welcome!  

I am so glad that you are here.  

I always enjoy our time together.  

It’s so hard to believe that Thanksgiving is just a few days away.  

I sure hope that you and your family are doing well and that you have plans to celebrate the holiday together.  

Nothing is more precious than time with our loved ones.

Today, I  am going to show you How to Create a Beautiful Cornucopia Thanksgiving Charcuterie Board.  

It really is so quick and easy.  

It’s sure to impress your friends and family.  

Come on, I’ll show you.

I have the perfect way for you to make a festive cheese board, using fresh fruits, savory meats  and fresh herbs-an easy way to use grocery stores simple ingredients.  

When I think of Thanksgiving, I think of a cornucopia.  

It’s a great way to serve a turkey charcuterie board as an appetizer before your Thanksgiving Feast.

It only takes three ingredients for the cornucopia-Pillsbury Refrigerated Biscuit dough, foil and butter.

Step 1: I started by wrapping the foil around a canister of Gatorade.  Be careful not to wrap it around too tightly, otherwise it will be hard to get it off of the canister.  I learned the hard way.  Why have a cookie cutter charcuterie board when you can have and extraordinary Thanksgiving board.

I am joining a great group of bloggers, for a Grateful Gatherings Thanksgiving Hop, hosted by my friend Laura from Decor to Adore.

Step 2: Around the middle of the “cornucopia,”  start to narrow it to a point  and curl up the end.   Fill it with balls of foil so that it will be rigid enough to hold the weight of the biscuit dough.

 3:  Open the roll of biscuit dough and pull apart the sections.

Step 4:  Starting at the tip of the Cornucopia, wrap a section around tightly.  As you add each new section of dough, make sure to pinch it into the last piece of dough wrapping the dough all the way around the foil form-this will keep it from coming apart during baking will continue to do this all the way to the “opening” of the cornucopia.

Now, it’s time to make the braid.

Step 5:  Take three balls of dough and create a long strand out of each ball.  Pinch the ends of all three strands and braid it together.  Then pinch the other end together

Step 6:  Attach the braid to the opening end of the cornucopia.

Step 7:  Melt butter in a small bowl and brush the butter evenly all over the cornucopia.  This will cause the cornucopia to brown to a nice golden hue.

Step 8: Bake at 300 degrees for about 20 minutes, making sure not to over cook it.

Step 9:  Remove from oven and let it cool.  Then remove the foil.

I love this idea-it makes me giddy.

Step 10:  Put the cornucopia on a tray and fill it with your favorite meats, cheese, fruit and veggies.

Supplies needed traditional charcuterie board for your Thanksgiving Gathering:

1. Pillsbury Refrigerated Biscuit dough, foil and butter.

2. A charcuterie board, cutting board or large platter.

3. A variety of  cheeses-soft cheeses, hard cheese and goat cheese.  Be sure to add cheese knives for easy serving.

4. Seasonal produce-apple slices, fall fruit and cranberry sauce.

5. Add a sweet treat-like golden brown maple leaf cookies.

6. A variety of meats- both traditional meats like turkey or ham and cured meats.

7. Garnish with mini pumpkins and fresh herbs like rosemary sprigs or sprigs of parsley or sage.

Doesn’t this make a fun presentation when entertaining for the holidays?

The best part is that there are no rules, no wrong way to do this.  Have fun and get creative.

All of these ingredients are easily available at your local grocery stores or Trader Joe store.  A cornucopia shape is the easiest way to feed hungry guests and is a surefire way to please meat lovers and those with a sweet tooth while finishing up your Thanksgiving meal preparations.
