Ingredients

1 can (8 crescents) Pillsbury* Original Crescents or Pillsbury* Multigrain Crescents or Pillsbury* Reduced Fat Crescents
8 tiny fish-shaped pretzel crackers
1 tbsp (15 mL) granulated sugar
1/4 tsp (1 mL) ground cinnamon
1 tbsp (15 mL) butter or margarine, melted
16 milk chocolate stars

Instructions

  • 1 Heat oven to 375ºF. Remove dough from can; do not unroll. With serrated knife, cut roll into 16 slices.
  • 2 For each owl, use 2 dough slices. Unroll a 2-inch strip from each. Place slices on ungreased baking sheet with sides touching and 2-inch strips at top center. For owl's horns, fold strips in half and bend toward outer edges; pinch strips at fold, forming points. For owl's beak, press 1 fish-shaped cracker, tail end pointing toward top of head, into bottom center of dough. Repeat with remaining dough slices and crackers to make 8 owls, placing owls 2 inches apart on baking sheet.
  • 3 In small bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon. Brush owls with melted butter; sprinkle with sugar mixture.
  • 4 Bake about 10 to 12 minutes or until light golden brown. Immediately press 2 chocolate stars on each owl for eyes. Carefully move to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 15 minutes, before serving.

Expert Tips

Tip : Well-chilled dough works best for slicing.

Substitution : Instead of fish-shaped crackers, try cashews for the beaks.
