    How to make it   25 minutes

  • 1

    Separate breadstick dough into six pieces. For each heart, unroll four pieces and twist if desired; seal perforations and pinch ends together. Shape into hearts on an ungreased baking sheet.

  • 2

    For arrows, unroll remaining two pieces and separate into four breadsticks. With scissors, cut one end of each breadstick into a point.

  • 3

    About 2 in. from the point, cut out a triangle from both sides of breadsticks (discard removed pieces). At the other end of the breadstick, make diagonal cuts on each side, creating feathers. Place on baking sheet with hearts.

    In a small bowl, combine butter and seasonings. Brush over the dough. Bake at 375°F for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown.

  • Editor’s Note: This recipe was tested with Pillsbury refrigerated breadsticks.
